Great banner Cal!

A beautiful banner, Cal. I wasn't familiar with the plant, but I guess that's not surprising since it's not hardy where I live. Glad to have learned something new today. Thank You!

Beautiful! It looks a bit like a penstemon flower, but I looked it up and this is a vine. Somewhat related to trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), which I am familiar with. This is called pink trumpet vine. Cool! Do you grow this, Cal?

Thanks everyone for your nice comments & thumbs. Smiling
Sorry I was not here earlier.

This is an outstanding plant!

Not really a vine with tendrils that grab onto things, but does send out very long shoots that will easily start
a new plant where ever they touch the ground.

No pests or diseases at all. No care except to prune to keep to a
manageable size. Blooms freely. Doesn't go dormant.

I had no idea it would get so large when I planted it, but now covers
a large boulder, and has started new plants 30ft away. Good to share
with neighbors.....just let it go over the fence. Green Grin!

But not difficult to keep in check, and the blooms attract hummers.

Since it is so gregarious, it grows through other plants,
e.g. a lemon, aloes, Angels Trumpet, African Tulip, &
Leucospermum, but all get along fine. Smiling
