David, my clerodendron in the kitchen window looked pale and
sickly no matter how much or little water or fertilizer I gave it --
this seems to happen every winter!  Therefore I have just cut it all
the way back to within 2 inches of earth, and I believe that it will
start afresh.  I start multitudes of plants from slips every year, 
but it had never occurred to me to try it with the clerodendron!  
And what's more, I had never ever put it outside, in 15 years of
growing them!  Next summer . . . . 

Full sun, right?

You've got crocuses growing?  We've got snow.
