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.

"I liked the Wowie Zowie type last year & this spring I was disappointed when I couldn't find those in the nursery as they grew better & brighter for me than some from the past. So growing from my own is the way to go."

"Joan, thanks so much for your kind words. I love taking pictures and when I see pretty scenes in the garden, I want to capture them so I can cheer myself up in the winter when everything is brown and covered in snow."

"Lorraine, how wonderful that you have a greenhouse. I would love to have one. You are right that zinnias are very easy to start from seed. I just wish I had the room inside (or a greenhouse!) to grow more things from seed. "

"Actually I grew from seed this year in the greenhouse--a very easy one to start. So this fall I will save my seeds & see if they produce the same results."
