Thunbergia’s also known as Black Eyed Susan vines are just annuals in my area zone 5 , but they beat out any perennial vine that we can grow here, and here is why.
Blooms all season long with no deadheading.
Loves heat, aggressive grower making for a quick cover.
Pretty during the growing season , including into fall months provided warm temperatures stay around.
Lemon Star Thunbergia is a sunny yet bright black eyed susan vine that you definitely want your hands on it you can get it. This one in particular was grown from a plug, which means a already started plant. The flowers I noticed are much bigger on this plant than on the seeded varieties.
All Black Eyed Susan Vines love sun, heat and moisture. Work great in baskets, pots or planted directly in the ground, but look out they grow and they grow like a weed, a darn pretty weed.. Just kidding, no weed here .
I love the thunbergia’s habit, fast and furious this vine grows !
There is no disappointed once you grow this vine. I am confident you will love it!
This is the Blushing Susie Thunbergia that I started from seed, and it is lovely and does just as well as all other varieties. The color on this vine is yellow to reddish tones.
Very unique and beautiful!
I like to put 3-4 plants per basket and from the picture you can see it does fill out and flourish.
Once the heat comes on , so does the growth , so look out!
Orange Beauty Thunbergia is also started from seed , however you can also buy this one finished, but if I can find the seed I will grow it. I love orange flowers whenever I can get them.
Hardiness weather around 32C degrees. Grows 5-8 ft in length so allow room to grow. Some varieties may vary in size. Blooms all season long making long lasting color .
What is your favorite black eyed susan vine? Those of you thinking about growing this one, I wouldn’t hesitate , You will love it!
I would rate this vine 5 *****
Have fun Growing!
