Bower vine (Pandorea jasminoides)


Pandorea jasminoides, the bower of beauty, bower vine or bower plant, is a species of woody climbing vine in the family Bignoniaceae. It is native to New South Wales and Queensland, Australia. Growing to 8 m (26 ft), it has compound, evergreen leaves, and in spring and summer produces trumpet-shaped flowers which are white or pale pink with a hairy, deep maroon throat, and fragrant. The petals may be 55mm long. It forms large pointed pods filled with papery seeds, and is easy to germinate, having two-lobed dicotyledons. It grows in USDA zones 9 and 10. It usually does not tolerate temperatures below 5 °C (41 °F), especially when young, and must be grown in a cool greenhouse or conservatory. Plants may be placed outside during summer months
