It may have a long name, but don’t let that deter you from planting yesterday, today, and tomorrow, an attractive flowering shrub for Florida landscapes.
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow blooms in the warm months of the year with color-changing flowers that start out lavender or purple and fade to white over the next day or two.
It blooms and looks its best if it’s planted where it will get morning sun but afternoon shade. It will reach eight to ten feet tall, though it can be kept shorter with a little pruning. Dwarf forms are also available although you might have to shop around to find them.
North Florida gardeners will need to protect this tender plant from the cold.
