Origin: Himilayan tropics
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

One of the most impressive climbing plants which also grows well in subtropical climates. A vigorous evergreen climber that can reach over 20 ft tall and as wide if a strong support is available. Very large leaves can reach 9 inches long and are a glossy green color with prominent veins and new growth has attractive brownish hairs. In late spring to early fall appear the terminal clusters of large (3-6 inch long by 4 inches wide) fragrant white flowers that are trumpet-shaped and resemble an Easter Lily.

Plant in full sun or light shade preferably in a rich soil and provide ample water. It is hardy to 28 degrees F and in cold years can be semi-deciduous. It dislikes heavy wet soil in winter. If pruning is required, as it often is because this plant can get rather large, do so just after flowering to promote new flowering wood for the following year.

Another very close species with slightly smaller leaves - Beaumontia murtonii.

Having grown up in Tropical W. Africa, I suspected that the vine might be highly sensitive to the wet and dry seasons, with that in mind, planted the vine under the eve of the house in the front garden in order to maintain better control over watering. The vine prospered, and has climbed to the eve of the house where a trellis was stationed for it along the edge of the roof. Through the months of May through Nov, no water is given except by what it might get naturally and then is protected by the eve of the house. As I suspected the vine seemed very sensitive to applications of water at different times of the year. In Nov thru Jan the vine gets water regularly like the rest of the plants with superbloom applied at bi-weekly intervals. Fall and winter in my zone is very much like a dry season with very little water, and even during the months I increase watering attention should be given to signs of stress, as too much water could be a reason. Successful now with 4 seasons of wonderful blooms, I'm happy to say that this spring has also seen the success of the Beaumontia Murtonii that I bought from Tops 3 or more years ago.
If anyone is familiar using the water deprivation technique used to get Solandra Maxima to bloom, the same techniques work on The Beamontia Grandiflora.

I have a mature 15 year old plant grown from seed and my family donated its sister plant to the UCF Arboretum. Firstly, they get to be BIG vines so put them in a place where they can can rip :-) like a large pergola or up a chimney. Secondly, they need to get to a critical height (c. 15 feet) in order to bloom. When they bloom, they are a magnificent sight! Right in early to mid April in Central Florida. Thirdly, they are heavy feeders that seem to like rose food and Osmacote (tropical formulation) and they can take a reasonably hard pruning (but you will sacrifice a prolific flowering display).

At least I think I am zone 9. I purchased an easter lily vine two seasons ago. The first season it grew just awesomely, reaching easily 10 to 12 feet. It came through our winter with only minimal frost damage. I did a very light trimming and off it went growing again this year. Some vines have easily reached 15 feet or more. The plant is doing just excellent in many respects: foliage is dark green and healthy, no visible pests, etc. I have it in a very sunny location and it is well watered and fertilized. Problem is that it has never bloomed or even set the first bud. I went out and bought special fertilize for tropicals and also fertilize for promotion of bloom production. Still the plant shows no signs of trying to bloom. It just continues to grow like crazy. I am wondering what the problem could be. Nobody around here seems familiar enough with the plant to give me any ideas. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated -- Roger in New Orleans, LA
