Description

We had 10 varieties of Thunbergias on trial 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.

Care Tips

Water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser once a month. Will require protection from frosts unless grown as an annual.
