Musical Note Plant!

IMG_2630

Have you heard of ‘musical note plant’? It is definitely not a plant that gives out nice music! I stumbled upon this plant in my recent nursery trip and found them pretty amusing. The flowers resemble the musical notes which are found in music scores and white in colour. They bloom in clusters of more than 10 buds but produce no fragrance.

Botanically known as Clerodendrum incisum, also commonly named ‘witches’ tongue’, this shrub is a sun-loving plant and can grow pretty well in our climate. Eventually the buds will open and the long red stamens emerge.
