Common name is the African Parachute Plant, but Parasol or Lampshade Plant would be good too!

Fantastic!
Could be a design for an 'Ascot hat'!

Sticki - the flowers are about 35mm across. It's a vine so as big as you want plant wise, but for me it just twines around a 25cm support frame.

Thanks Leigh and Junna!

Thats cool, is it like a curtain? where do you grow all these lol i picture your house as this mad rainforest place with tropical bird noises and these colourful plants everywhere-or do you just have a greenhouse lol :-)) either way pretty cool!

My last house was good as it had a conservatory, but not here. Some are struggling and may have to go..............

26 Jun, 2012

 

I've seen blown glass in this pattern....11 years apprencticment!

26 Jun, 2012

 

Could you just build a new conservatory instead lol :-)
