Wonga Wonga Vine
The Wonga Wonga vine ( Pandorea pandorana ) is a fast growing climbing plant which is native to Australia and parts of the South-western Pacific region. It produces masses of flowers in Spring as the warmer weather starts. There are several colours available including yellow'/gold, pink, and white /creamy white. The plant can be utilized as an attractive screen for privacy when grown over a trellis or maybe to cover a wall. It grows best when in full sun , but it will tolerate light shade, and it is very hardy and fairly drought tolerant once established. One plant can grow quite large, easily covering say a 3m x 3m area of support. In the wild, it scrambles over other vegetation and climbs up other trees and shrubs. Suited to frost-free temperate and warmer climates.
I photographed this Pandorea plant in a reserve on Sydney Harbour.
