More Details

We had 10 varieties of Thunbergias on trial last summer and this was the most magnificent – rich and irresistible in the height of summer.

The flower colours of this series can range from pale orange to deep, rich red, depending on how much sunlight the plants are exposed to. Place the plants in the sunniest position you can to encourage darker red blooms. As spring moves into summer and we benefit from longer, sunnier days, the flower colours will naturally become redder and deeper.

These didn't perform as well as ones I had last year, possibly because it was so hot and dry that I had difficulty keeping up the watering regime. Very pretty flowers, just not that many of them.

I have planted these in various places in the garden in the open ground and in pots some in shade, some in full sun but not one of them has dark red flowers. If anything they are pale yellow to light orange. So big disappointment re colour but still like the plants.

NOT AS RED AS EXPECTED
