Clerodendron

October 3, 2018

This beautiful shrub grows in Claude Monet’s flower garden. It has not been planted for many years, so I wondered what could be the name of this new comer. I browsed the internet eagerly, without any success.

The next day, by chance, I found it. I was sipping an expresso on the terrasse of  La Capucine, a coffee-shop at Giverny that also sells plants, when my eyes got caught by this big flowery plant that was displayed in the distance. I jumped out of my seat, rushed to the pot, read the label, ‘Clerodendron’ ! It is such a joy when you experiment in your own life the help of up there.  Now I’m posting in order to share and not to forget.
