Thunbergia grandiflora - Bengal Clock Vine


Thunbergia grandiflora - Bengal Clock Vine (Thunbergia grandiflora - Bengal Clock Vine)

Bengal Clock Vine is very common and you can watch it grow...as it grows so extremely fast. It can cover a gigantic area within a year and in a couple of years it can take over your whole house and yard (if not pruned). Photo taken on August 3, 2010 at Quail Botanical Gardens.

Lovely.I also have something like this but its not flowering now.Does it gives off a pungent somewhat garlic like smell?

Camillia:

Bengal Clock Vine has no fragrance. I think you may have Garlic vine - Cydista aequinoctialis. It looks pretty similar. Garlic vine is very widely grown here in California also.

It's beautiful. Sounds like my kind of vine. I have very poor soil, and I prefer to grow things that don't need to be coddled.I'd much rather do some occasional pruning and dividing than have to constantly pet my plants.

Gorgeous! What do you think are the chances of growing it as an annual, like T. alata, Delonix?

Thunbergia are very easy to grow but they need water for good growth.

All the Thunbergia species are used as annuals because of their fast growth.

I'll have to see where I can find some seeds for next spring!

Tugbrethil:

It should be commonly available on the internet. This vine is not rare. Thunbergia very commonly seeds everywhere...I'm having this problem with my Thunbergia 'Blushing Susan' ...it's popping up every where in my garden, even in the sidewalk cracks. : > )
