Solandra


Solandra (solandra maxima)

This is about 6" across. I don't know what it is, but makes a great wall cover or for a trellis/arbor.

This is Sollandra (maxima I think), also called the Golden Chalice Vine.
A beautiful climber and one that is on my wish list!

Thanks for the ID. I had a friend who had an entire side of his house covered in this, and it was something to see when it bloomed.

Lovely. Another plant that I'd like to grow. I expect it's not hardy in colder climes! I googled it, not hardy enough for me to grow. It is a member of the Nightshade family so is very poisonous, so don't eat it!

Chrispook: I grow several poisonous plants, including ricinus, and put them near the entries to my property. It's to warn the farmers that if they don't control their cows, they may eat something that will kill them. The farmers don't care if the cows break down fences or jump over walls, and I started having fewer problems after putting these types in front (but inside & behind closed walls). Goats are the worst.
