Flowers in Australia: 4

Trumpet Vine or Creeper

This is some sort of trumpet vine or creeper, but I don’t think it is the Campsis radicans as that has pinnate leaves and bright orange or red, trumpet-shaped flowers whereas my flowers are pink and white and the leaves look evergreen. The flower below is definitely Campsis radicans – note the different leaves.

EditMandevilla is a genus of tropical and subtropical flowering vines belonging to the dogbane family, Apocynaceae. It was first described as a genus in 1840. A common name is rocktrumpet.

      I think they are trumpet vines / creeper or often called Port St John or Zimbabwe Creeper – I know this flower from South Africa.
