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 have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
