Thunbergia coccinea - BSWJ7166

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
An unusual climber that I collected the seed of on Doi Phohong Pok in 1999, accompanied by a platoon of soldiers, who had offered to guide me while in this dangerous border area with Burma. A twinning climber clambering through dense undergrowth, with ovate leaves acute on their bases and tips, with undulating margin and conspicuous venation. Bearing from late summer long-very long (1m) racemes of unusual red-orange paired tubular flowers encased in a large calyx. Best treated as a tender plant kept virtually frost free in a humus rich soil that is drained.
