Bridal Veil Clerodendrum in bloom

Just a quick stop in my garden again, the Clerodendrum wallachii, Bridal Veil, is flowering.  This Clerodendum does sucker, make no mistake, but by far not as vigorous as other Cleros.
This plant here is from an escaped root piece, I did not catch it early enough and by now it is an established plant. I figure I let it fend for itself in my jungle.


Beautiful clusters of white flowers, light green buds, and redish sepals


The leaves are a glossy dark green


A closer look at one if the flowers


The buds are light green


The plant grows at the base of a Crepe Myrtle.
