    Hearts a bursting (Euonymous americanus) maybe?

      Thanks for trying to help me. I’m sorry it took so long to approve your message. I didn’t receive an email and didn’t realize I had a message pending approval. 🙁 From what I could tell looking up the Euonymous Americanus I don’t think that is what I have, but that plant would be a good one to get, as it appears it would do well in my climate.

  2. Hey Char, I don’t know if you heard from anyone else, but this looks a lot like a plant we have sold at the flower shop. It is called Clerodendron. If you Google Images, it is there, hopefully you feel it is a match as well.

    Thank you very much for letting me know. I looked up the Clerodendron and yes I believe it is a match. I’ve had this plant for a long time, it made the move with me but never bloomed at my new house until I put it in this pot. 🙂

    oh, I can’t remember, but I think the common name is dragon spitting pearl or somethng like that (it looks just like it!). Whatever it is, it’s a beauty!

    I also live in FL and have always called this the FL bleeding heart, but that is not the botanical name. Deborah is right, it is Clerodendron thomsoniae. I love it and have had it for years.

    Bleeding heart; a beautiful climbing vine that will thrive in partial shade.
