Flowers of the Wonga Wonga Vine

Such a lovely time of year when these flowers bloom all along my side fence near the rear of house.

Clare it is part of the Pandorea family. I have never had any luck with other varieties in this family. I tried to grow Pandorea Jasminodes 'Lady Di' and 'Bower of Beauty' along the fence around the chicken run, but no joy there. This Wonga took ages to get going and was actually enclosed by fencing when we were building the new house, so it never got watered, but suddenly decided after being in the ground for years that it was time to literally grow up and has become a much loved vine in our garden! They are all Aussie natives, but I know aussie plants do get sold overseas in garden centres.

Lyn, I've never heard of a Wonga Wonga vine. How interesting and pretty they are! Do you know if these are related to the trumpet vine family? They must look awesome on your fence.
