Tecomaria Mango - Bright Orange Sunset
This variety commonly has been called "Salmon" but it fact it is bright orange. We changed the name to avoid confusion with another variety "Apricot" (item 5973) that is closer to salmon color. One of the most rewarding flowering plants! Stunning display of orange flowers year round, from winter through spring and summer. Unlike other tecomarias, it is more of an upright shrub with naturally compact shape and doesn't shoot long leggy branches. You don't have to prune it, it keeps naturally rounded, bushy shape. Attracts butterflies. It's an eye catching flower that appears all year round!

Vallaris solanacea - Thai Cherry Vine
Thai Cherry, Scented Bread Flower, Asphota. This plant is a woody shrub with vining habit, close related to Vallaris glabra and Wrightia sp. Fragrant flowers resemble cherry flowers. They have an intense, interesting fragrance. The smell is said to be close to that of Pandan leaves, a relative of Kewda, which is used to flavor rice in some South-East Asian countries. An essential ingredient of the bunga rampai, the decorated arrangement of finely sliced, fragrant leaves used for Malay weddings. Can be trained as a compact bush and is good for container culture. The plant can be trained into a nice small tree or trimmed into a shrub, but the best way is to let it go: the twisting branches form weird shapes. Slow growing plant, makes compact forms. The plant blooms profusely on and off during spring and summer. Relatively cold tolerant, will stand short period of cool weather. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
