Strophanthus gratus (Climbing oleander) is a fast-growing vine or creeper that is native to West Africa. Grown in USDA Zones 9-11, it requires full sun to semi-shade, regular water and prefers a fertile, humus-rich soil with good drainage. The pink flowers are especially attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, and boast a wonderfully fragrant scent. The flowers add texture to the gardens and create a stunning display.

In cold regions it is important to take precautions when growing Strophanthus gratus in a pot. The mature plant is cold hardy to at least to 30s F for a short period of time. However, if in doubt, it's best to move the potted plant inside during freezes.

With proper care and attention, Strophanthus gratus will be an attractive addition to your garden.
