Remarkable Flowering Plant

This floriferous shrub was spotted at the commercial section of the recent Horticulture 2012, the annual garden show of the Philippine Horticultural Society held at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City.

It is a variegated version of the Clerodendrum quadriloculare, a native of the Philippines. It is quite rare because of its variegated leaves. The common one is the all-green cultivar.

An enterprising member of PHS paid P7,000 for this particular plant. He intends to grow it even more floriferous for the next Horti show. It could win the Best-in-Show award hands down.
