Pandorea pandorana

Wonga-wonga Vine
Evergreen, Vines, Flowers


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 previous year’s growth; prune to shape or thin vines after flowering.
