Take-Home Planting Ideas from the Big Island

What Houzz contributors are saying:

7. Grow a plant pretty enough for leis. On the mainland, cape plumbago is often relegated to freeway or chain-link fence duty, where it sprawls and climbs out of control. In Hawaii the baby blue blooms are considered attractive enough to go into leis. Try the evergreen shrub Hawaiian style — in a clipped hedge or even in a pot, where you can see the flowers up close from spring through fall. Botanical name: Plumbago auriculata Common name: cape plumbagoUSDA zones: 9 to 11Water requirement: Light Light requirement: Full sun or light shadeMature size: 6 feet and taller, and much wider Growing tips: Prune or shear it back to control the size in late winter or early spring.
