It contains 8 species of evergreen and deciduous subshrubs of the family Plumbagovi. In their homeland live in dry subtropical forests in foothills and river valleys. Its strange name comes from the Latin name for lead - plumbum because it was considered that helps lead poisoning.

Is branched evergreen liana, with long, rich oblisteni branches. Bark of older branches is brownish, oblong, with white stripes. The leaves are consistent, bright green, ovate oblong prigapen peak.

Very nice and grateful bunch liana blossoms ... long time no catch diseases and pests. It flowers from March to October. Grow at a temperature of 4-5 C to 24-25 C.

Colors are yasnosini, rarely white, gathered in large chadaresti satsveniya, much like the colors of Phlox.

Withstands drop of temperature within 4-6 degrees. In the summer watering thoroughly, and not allow very dry soil, because plumbagoto will cease to bloom, spray with water from time to time, fueling frequently - once a week. Pretsaftelite colors are necessarily removed to avoid disfigurement and debilitating plant. Spring transplanting it into a mixture of chimovka, peat, and well burnt leaflet manure with the addition of a little sand.
