White Cape Plumbago is a perennial shrub, a variant of the commonly blue-flowering Plumbago auriculata, native to South Africa. It's a popular choice for its elegant flowers and versatility in various garden settings.

The most striking feature of White Cape Plumbago is its flowers. The blooms are a pure white, appearing in clusters, and are known for their extended blooming period, often lasting from early summer into the fall. The flowers are attractive to butterflies, adding an element of dynamic wildlife interaction to the garden.

In addition to its attractive blooms, White Cape Plumbago has a sprawling, semi-woody growth habit, making it suitable for a variety of uses in the landscape. The plant's stems are somewhat vine-like, allowing it to climb if given support, and its light green foliage provides a lush backdrop for the white flowers.

White Cape Plumbago is adaptable and can be used as a standalone shrub, in mixed borders, as a foundation planting, or in container gardens. It's also effective as a ground cover or trained on trellises and fences in regions with mild winters.

This plant prefers well-drained soil and, once established, is fairly drought-tolerant. It thrives in full sun but can also tolerate partial shade, though this may reduce the number of blooms. Pruning can help maintain the desired shape and promote denser growth and flowering.

Overall, White Cape Plumbago is valued for its continuous blooming, ease of care, and the soft, elegant color it brings to landscapes. Its versatility and attractiveness to butterflies make it a favored choice for gardeners seeking to create a serene and wildlife-friendly garden space.
