Does anyone know the name of a tropical fower with a blueish bloom similar in shape to a Phlox flower. The plant itself was a deep green and a couple feet tall. The name starts with PL
Somehow a clipping got into my purse and now I can't remember the name of it *g*

Plumbago it is! I just looked it up. Apparently it is quite easy to root from a clipping as well which is great.
Thankyou 1601.
