Blooming Friday- a Pleasant Surprise

The Mysore Clock Vine, Thunbergia mysorensis was planted more than a year ago. Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to notice the blooms of the Thunbergia hanging from the Amla tree ,which the vine has taken as a support.
Named after the beautiful city of Mysore, this Thunbergia is considered to be the most beautiful creeper by gardeners all over the world. I am waiting to see more blooms during the season.
For more flower posts, please visit Katarina at Roses and Stuff.

  5. Katarina, this vine has not only found support from the tree, but is now creeping along the ground too.
