Black-Eyed Susan Vine

Thunbergia alata

Tubular flowers with bold petals surrounding a dark, compact center adorn the trailing vines of this beauty. This plant is unique in its vining in that it twines itself around existing structures rather than locking in with tendrils.

  • Light Needs: Full Sun to Partial Shade
  • Water Needs: Keep soil moderately moist without it becoming overly soggy
  • Bloom Season: Summer to Fall
  • Habit: Trailing
Barlow's strongly recommends not planting your tender annuals until nighttime temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Exposing these plants to temperatures below 55 degrees may lead to frost damage or the death of the plant.
