Thunbergia

Thunbergia (Thunbergia alata (Black-eyed Susan))

I needed a fast growing annual climber for the spot that I've set aside for my Bomerea next year and decided to give this a go by way of a change.

I like pastel colours.
It is a one year deal though - google Bomerea to find out why!!

Surreylad - then you'll understand why (nice though it is) this is only temporary for this year!
Mine is B.hirtella.

This is lovely. That Bomarea however, is stunning! I look forward very much to seeing your photos of that one next year Meanie! :)

Thanks Karen!
I made this raised bed with the Bomerea in mind - the sides are insulated with 50mm of polystyrene, and I can put a roof on it if I fear the worst! But they'll not be exposed to it this winter.

Excellent strategy Meanie, you won't want to lose that one!

Meanie:

Watch out! This vine is a super fast grower. You're lucky it's only an annual there! I'm still trying to eradicate my Thunbergia 'Blushing Susan'. In 2 years it's taken over the whole side of my house and popping up everywhere, even in the cracks in the sidewalk. :>/

I'll collect some seed from it and maybe keep them next year in a different spot then Delonix.

Meanie:

Good luck! I never see the seeds, but I know there must be many because they're popping up all over and even in my potted plants.

A bit of a nuisance then!

Meanie:

I'll take some pics and show you.
