Sue's Notes about Ceratostigma plumbaginoides (Plumbago, Hardy plumbago, dwarf plumbago)

Although known as a hardy plumbago, I've lost this plant in cold winters outside in the garden, although it has come through fine in the unheated polytunnel, coping with temperatures down to about -7C. Not to be confused with the shrubby form, Ceratostigma willmottianum
