Description

Clerodendrum splendens, commonly called flaming glory bower is a twining, evergreen, woody-stemmed vine that typically grows to 10-12' long. Elliptic to ovate leaves (to 7 long) are a lustrous dark green. Flowers are salver form (which means tuba shaped) having a slender tube with an abruptly expanded corolla, bright red flowers bloom in dense terminal clusters (to 4-5" long).

Flowers are attractive to butterflies.

Environment

Flaming Glorybower performs best in full sun to part shade with plenty of moisture. The plant prefers rich, fertile, well-drained soil.

The vines are also very thirsty, and you must never allow them to dry out during the active growing season.
It needs frequent fertilization to supply nutrients required to produce blooms. Feed the plant a slow-release fertilizer every two months during the blooming season, or use a water-soluble fertilizer every month.

Landscape Use

Annual vine for trellises, arbors or fences

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
