My plant starts to flower.

Surprisingly; it starts to open from the mettle, not the button as usual.

  

This member of the Verbenaceae family was given this name by Robert Brown and Wilhelm Vatke in 1882. It is found in the Tropical part of Africa/East Africa, growing in a rich soil with some water and some sun. The caudex will grow to 15 centimetres in diameter, the vine-like stems to 4 meters. The flowers are bright blue, and it can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.

Really confusing with the names. It might be Clerodendron ugandense , but I'm not sure. Also the ClerodendrOn and ClerodendrUn seems to be a fault.
