This compact vine has a twining habit producing 2-3" dark blue funnel shaped flowers with golden throat, displayed throughout it's dense deep green foliage. It is the least invasive of all thunbergia vines, grows rather slowly and keeps very compact shape. This species is probably the best for container culture or a small trellis. It tolerates shade, too. It is hardy to light freeze which also makes this species very unique, especially for subtropical gardeners.
