Pyrostegia Venusta

Pyrostegia venusta or the Flame Vine is an evergreen climber that bears the wonderful showers of orange, tubular flowers during the winter/spring. It has attractive, lush green leaves which are paired along the sinewy and thin branches. This plant has strong twiners which will cling to almost anything, including bare brick walls.

Although a strong trellis or fence is best recommended when it is full of bloom. It will flower at its best in a sheltered sunny position and be an absolute delight in winter when many other flowers are dormant. This is a hardy plant that will tolerate coastal conditions, drought, frost and even neglect, once established.
