Clero­den­dron tri­co­to­mum var. far­ge­sii ‘Car­ni­val’

This colour­ful de­cid­u­ous medium-sized shrub has heav­ily var­ie­gated leaves of grey-green and pale yel­low which age to a creamy-white. In late sum­mer to early au­tumn pale pink buds open into fra­grant white flow­ers which are fol­lowed by strik­ing turquoise blue berries sur­rounded by five pointed dark ma­genta ca­lyces. ‘Car­ni­val’ prefers a site in full sun or par­tial shade in well-drained fer­tile soil.
