      1. I know it and love it Jude and have seen it in glorious flower in the Cairns Botanic Garden. I do not have one in my garden, it does need a large area to roam in. Also it is a tropical and I am sub tropical so may not suit it here.

      1. Philippines. I have seen them in glasshouses over here, but never in flower until last year when I saw this one in Kew Gardens (Princess of Wales Conservatory). And, yes, this is the true colour. Divine isn’t it?


      1. I see PP is sub-tropical too and doubts if we can grow them here. Cairns is much further north. I love the botanical gardens there but haven’t sighted this vine. Will keep on the look out for it next time I visit.

  1. The blooms after my own heart – odd and exquisite. I’m not much of a gardener – I am what you might call the flower mortician, but I appreciate them when they are alive too 😀 Beautiful post, Jude!

  2. No no, no idea what I can use for this challenge so I may just gaze in admiration. Would you believe it-home later today and we’ve just got a connection to the neighbours Internet? All proceeding well, I hope xxx
