The Q&A Archives: Pink Bower Vine

Question: I was looking for a fragrant, flowering evergreen vine to plant to grow up iron gates in the front of our house. I came across the Pink Bower Vine and thought it might work nicely. However, my nursery says it's not fragrant. The indication on your web site suggests that it is. Do you know how I can find a fragrant version of the Pink Bower or some other vine that might work nicely?

Thanks, Debra

Answer: The commonly grown Pandorea jasminoides is not at all fragrant, but the deep pink form has a delightful fragrance. Choose the Pink Bower Vine and you'll be happy with the flowers and their fragrance.
