  1. We have grown clerodendrum over the past 15 years. It matures into a delightful large bush with many hummingbird visitors and then completely dies back ( this is in about five year intervals.). It sends out plenty of new plants from side roots. We were told by the person who gave us the plant that it had this limited life span…about 5 to 10 years.
