Planting And Care

This vigorous vine grows in full sun, with southern exposure, but stays greener and prettier with a little shade protection from the blazing afternoon sunshine, especially in warmer climates. Water the plant when the soil is dry, and fertilize in spring and fall with a granular fertilizer.

Prune after the blooming cycle is over to encourage a quick re-sprout and prune again in late summer. When winter comes close, mulch the roots with pine needles or other organic material.

Thunbergia Erecta Nana Care

Sky vine (Thunbergia grandiflora), also commonly referred to as clock vine, a member of the tropical Acanthaceae family and is an evergreen in frost-free climates, where it also produces fruits, but growth slows or stops in cool temperatures. It is hardy in Zones 8-11.

The clusters of its trumpet flowers will enrich your garden with the vibrant feel from India, its origin. Dramatic lavender-blue flowers on a backdrop of dark green heart-shaped leaves will light up your garden all summer, or all year long in tropical climates.
