Pandorea pandorana ‘Lemon Glitters’ – Wonga Wonga Vine

A free flowering form of the handsome Wonga Wonga Vine, ‘Lemon Glitters’ produces a great profusion of blossoms which completely cover the plant in late winter and spring. The verdant green foliage also looks attractive all year round, and will quickly cover a fence or other climbing structure if given regular fertilizer and watering, and can be pruned to size. It can be grown in a large pot with regular pruning to achieve a shrubby form. Flowers best in a sunny spot but will grow in a partly shaded position.
