Excellent. Would like to have one like this. It has beautiful colour and shape of the flowers.

It has a lovely color and it is a popular climber here in Mexico.
We can not grow it on Vancouver Island
and I do not think you can grow it where you live Katarina, sorry :-(

We grow here olive trees and figs, Klahanie :))

We grow olive trees and fig trees on the Island as well.
But I cannot grow this plant. Can you buy it in the garden centers? We have milder winters, but you have warmer summers.

Very pretty and such an unusual colour.

I didnĀ“t ask it from you, Klahanie :)

I did not offer, Katarina
I was just wondering if you can get it in gadren centers where you live. Sometimes people can grow it indoors. Something like passion flowers.
It is a fast grower around here (Mexico) 6 ft per year. That is why it is so popular for covering the brick walls.
But I do not think that it would grow so fast up north in the pots.

Hello Lulu, it is striking color. Wery attractive with that little bit of yellow in the throats.

This is now in my favourites all because of its beautiful shade of blue :-)

I'm not sure if they grow here Klahanie. If they do and I find this blue type, it's mine! ;o)

It's one of my favorites, besides T. mysorensis. It's a very widely grown vine here in San Diego. It grows so super fast and huge is one of its downfalls or benefits (depending on where it's planted).

I had T. alata 'Blushing Susan' which took over the side of my house. I had to take it out...now, I have hundreds of seedlings popping up everywhere.
