Thumbergia rapid-growing climbers


Thumbergia rapid-growing climbersThumbergia are slender, rapid-growing climbers that are extremely pretty when in bloom during June, but they are only half-hardy; they therefore need greenhouse care, or to be planted in a warm situation.

The Thumbergia flourish best in a mixture of sandy loam and leaf-mould, and may be grown from seed sown in heat (65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) early in spring. Cuttings strike readily.

The height of the Thumbergia is about four feet.
