Pandorea pandorana ‘Ruby Belle’ – Wonga Wonga Vine

A fast growing climber, this form of the Wonga Wonga Vine produces a free flowering abundance of deep red blooms with white throats, from winter to spring. The dense dark green foliage also creates an attractive screen or vine, wherever you need a vigorous climber in the garden. The root system can be equally vigorous, so don’t plant close to pipes.
