Blue Curls I would say & a beautiful job of photographing them Fleur.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Lovely flower and photo, Fleur.
Could it possibly be Clerodendrum ugandense?

Argggg.....the plant people keep changing the names, and I can't keep up with (or pronounce) the new ones! But thank you for the clarification.

Very beautiful banner! I grew these one year seems like I ordered them from a seller in Florida. They are such a different beautiful flower form anything else I ever grew. A friend in Florida grew them of course they grew much larger for her and even wintered outdoors.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

When our local Target had a nursery, it carried this plant each year. It's quite tender and couldn't survive even a mild winter in our zone (9a), but I suspect that all of the stores in the Target chain carried the same plants with no regard for USDA zones. In spite of its fragility, I used to buy the plant each year. This beautiful banner reminds me why I paid top perennial prices for plants that could never be anything more than "annuals" in my garden.
