  • Are these the same plants in the other pics you posted with the butterfly? Are these a small tree/shrub?

    That's a type of Clerodendrum. I can't tell you exactly which one.

    Ah, I found it, bummer, it doesn't grow as a perennial in my area! Enjoy it! Clerodendrum splendens - Red Glory Bower.

    The leaf looks like the Mexican Hydrangea (Clerodendrum bungei) that has taken over my yard. My flower, however, is pink. When cut or broken they smell horrid. IF they spread like my variety, I hope you like them. :-) I've tried for years to keep them under control without much success. All I can do is pull them out. Because it's not an unattractive plant, I did plant one in a pot for the deck.
