Purple beauty - Plumbago flower

International visitors to South Africa, especially the British, are always amazed at the fact that the Plumbago grows so beautifully in the wild over here while they have to cultivate it with care back home.  This one is growing semi wild but is being kept neat at Camp Figtree in the Zuurberg mountains outside Port Elizabeth. 


  1. I sure do like seeing your flowers while winter starts here.

  2. Gorgeous photo!
    Love these plants - I have several in my garden - the pale ones, the deeper blues and the white
