//Brick And Butter Vine

A bit more information for you. Thunbergia mysorensis (Brick & Butter Vine) is a tropical evergreen vine covered with glossy, dark forest green lanceolate foliage but the most spectacular characteristic are the rich red and yellow, two-lipped flowers that hang down the foliage. Endemic to India, where winter climates are mild, will bloom off and on throughout the year. Does best in full sun or part shade and because of its vigor, provide a sturdy support such as a pergola so that the elongated, pendant blossoms can be easily seen. Needs regular water. Hummingbirds and other pollinators are attracted to its sweet nectar.This plant is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful vines in the world and received the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993. Other common names including Indian Clock Vine, Mysore Clock Vine, Lady Slipper Vine and Dolls Shoes. Enjoy!
