Clerodendrum 'Musical Notes' is a perennial that grows like a shrub. It is the flower buds that give this plant its common name, which droop delicately resembling musical notes. Plants may reach heights between three and five feet and spread four to five feet. Blooms summer and fall. While it can handle full sun, afternoon shade, in summer, is recommended for this plant. They may die back in winter, but usually return in spring.
