Bleeding Heart Java Red (Clerodendrum speciosus)
The Java Red Bleeding Heart Vine vine is an heirloom favorite. It has graced the shady nooks and trellises of homes for many years.
At one time it was very common, but like many wonderful hierloom plants, can be somewhat difficult to find in local nurseries and garden centers.
This variety of Bleeding Heart Vine is a Clerodendrum, a semi tropical vine and is native to Western Africa. It grows as a loose, climbing vine-like shrub. The leaves are large and dark shiny black green. In the early summer it bursts forth with unique flowers making a striking unusual contrast to the dark green foliage.
Growing Bleeding Heart - Java Red
Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil soil in the full sun to light dappled shade, add quality organic material as needed. Keep well watered and protect from frost.
Goes semi-dormant in winter, looking lovely now! :)
