Clerodendrum bungei (Rose Glory Bower)

Rose Glory Bower, Glory Bower, Glory Flower, Cashmere Bouquet, Mexicali Rose, Mexican Hydrangea


Clerodendrum bungei (Rose Glory Bower) is a suckering semi-evergreen shrub with rounded terminal clusters, 8 in. across (20 cm), packed with small, delightfully scented rosy-pink flowers from midsummer to fall. Grabbing the attention, they attract butterflies and other pollinators. The foliage of large, oval leaves, 12 in. long (30 cm), is dark green above with fuzzy bronze-green undersides. It is unpleasantly scented when crushed. Fast-growing, Rose Glory Bower is a pretty addition to the late season garden when few other flowering shrubs offer color. Evergreen in mild winter areas.

  • Grows up to 3-6 ft. tall and wide (90-180 cm). Will form a spreading colony by suckering if not controlled.
  • Easily grown in organically rich, fertile, moistwell-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun, but appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Great in shrub borders, city gardens, coastal gardens, cottage gardens.
  • Virtually disease free and pest free. Deer resistant.
  • Pinch back throughout the growing season to make a compact shrub. Where winter hardy, plants will spread aggressively by root suckers which should be regularly pruned out. It has a clear potential for escaping from cultivation and becoming invasive.
  • Propagate by seed at 55-64°F (13-18°C) in spring. Propagate by suckers in autumn or spring. Alternatively, propagate by taking semi-ripe cuttings with bottom heat in summer. Root cuttings can be taken in winter.
  • Native to China, northern India.
