Black-Eyed Susan Vine Spanish Eyes Seeds

Black-Eyed Susan Vine Spanish Eyes Seeds

Thunbergia alata

Item #1182

Annual. There are countless ways to enjoy this cheery, sun-loving vine; window boxes, ground cover, on a trellis as a screen, in hanging baskets, decorating mailboxes and columns. Very fast growing with lush foliage and masses of blooms all summer long in a dazzling, eye-catching array of sunset hues; the petals make a brilliant contrast to the dark, “Spanish eyes”. Perennial in USDA zones 9 to 11; otherwise grown as an annual.
