Plant of the Month, June 2022

Plant of the Month - Pandorea jasminoides (Bower of Beauty)This month Pandorea jasminoides (Bower of Beauty), a vigorous, twining climber with dark green leaves, is the Plant of the Month.

This is a hardy vine that is endemic to eastern Australia and is suitable for a trellis or pergola. It will grow in most soils in full sun but also likes some shade.

The flowers, which come in spring and early summer, are pink or white trumpet shaped with a maroon centre.

Fertilise with a good native food that is low in phosphorus in early spring and summer to assist flowering. Maintain with a good prune after flowering.
