Podranea ricasoliana

Pink Trumpet Vine
Bignoniaceae
Evergreen, Vines

Native to South Africa. Sprawling growth to 20 ft.; must be fastened to its support. Glossy dark green leaves consist of two to five opposite pairs of 2-in. leaflets plus one terminal leaflet. Blooms in spring or summer, when tips of new growth produce loose clusters of 2–3-in.-wide, red-veined pink flowers shaped like open trumpets.

Grows slowly when young, then speeds up as it matures. Likes heat and good drainage. Use on posts, arbors, trellises, walls, or trunks of high-branching trees. Thin out any tangling growth in winter. Light frosts may cause leaves to drop; heavier frosts may kill the vine to the ground, but regrowth is almost certain as long as the soil doesn’t freeze.
