Ceratostigma (Leadwort, Dwarf Plumbago)
The genus Ceratostigma is fairly small, containing just 8 species of perennial wildflowers that are related to plumbago and limonium. Of the 8 species, Ceratostigma plumbaginoides is a common ornamental plant in colder climates, but doesn't tolerate our hot, humid summers. Other species, like Ceratostigma willmottiana, Ceratostigma griffithii and Ceratostigma minus are not as winter hardy, but perform much better in warmer climates.
