Alexis,

Sky vine (Thunbergia grandiflora) is a beautiful vine. It can take full sun but also does will with a little late day shade. It needs a well drained soil and moderate fertility to maintain good vigor and bloom production. Mix in a few inches of compost throughout the planting bed to enrich the soil prior to planting. Keep the soil evenly moist. Provide it a large trellis to grow on as Sky vine is fairly vigorous.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
