Pandorea jasminoides 'Funky Bellz'
Common name: Bower of Beauty
A moderately vigorous climber with luxurious dark green leaves and vibrant dark pink flowers with a snow white throat which is a new flower pattern for this species. Peak flowering is in late spring but it then spot flowers through the warmer months. This plant can be used as a ground cover but will also climb vigorously if given something to support it. It also makes a superb balcony or courtyard plant when grown in a container. If you wish to grow it like this you will need to prune it back hard after flowering to keep a shrubby upright habit. Regular feeding will help to keep it flowering through the warmer months.
