Pandorea

Bignoniaceae
Evergreen, Vines

Twining vines noted for clusters of trumpet-shaped flowers and for rich green, glossy, divided leaves; the foliage is so attractive that the plants look lovely even when out of bloom. Perform best in good, organically enriched soil. Blooms are borne on the previous year’s growth; prune to shape or thin vines after flowering.

Pandorea jasminoides

Native to Australia. Fast growth to 20–30 ft. Each leaf has five to seven oval, 1–2-in.-long leaflets with pointed tips. Typically unscented flowers are white with pink throats, 1 1/2–2 in. long; bloom from late spring to early fall. Plant in lee of the prevailing wind. Prolonged freezes will kill this species and its varieties. Regular water.

Pandorea pandorana

Native to Australia and the Pacific islands. More vigorous than P. jasminoides, covering twice the space; give it plenty of room. Small (to 3/4 in. long), unscented spring flowers are typically creamy white, often spotted brownish purple in the throat. ‘Golden Showers’ has golden yellow blossoms. Tougher, more wind-resistant, and less susceptible to freeze damage than P. jasminoides. Moderate water.
