Clerodendrum ugandense

This leggy shrub native to Uganda in the eastern corridor is producing profuse panicles of these beautiful China blue flowers against pear-shaped mid green simple leaves.
The four upper lobes are broadly symmetrical and in a paler blue giving rise to the common moniker of butterfly bush - the curving anthers also looking rather like antennae. But the lower, fifth keeled petal in a deeper inky blue anchors these butterflies beautifully.
