seduced by a Clerodendrum quadriloculare...
I bought a Clerodendrum quadriloculare in full bloom from Lowes today for $9.98. (They were selling like hotcakes!) After reading about it on the web, I realize it is good at suckering and I don't need another shrub that does that.
My question is, will it grow in a large pot and survive without extra watering in the summer (I won't be here), or should I return it to Lowes? I realize it won't like the frosts we get, so maybe I should just return it. (But it does look wonderful in bloom!)
