Thunbergia gregorii, Orange Clock Vine

Thunbergia gregorii

Orange Clock Vine
Family: Acanthaceae
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowers

The amount of color that can be put out by this vine is unsurpassed. It is a continuous grower and will creep and crawl over everything in reach. The stems root and creep, though this is not an impossible task to keep after it does need to be watched. It will die to the ground in the mid 20's but can come back from much deeper chill than that. The stems have hairs that cause itching when they are dry. It is best to wear long sleeves when trimming or removing sections of this plant. Water occasionally.
