Origin

Tropical Africa

Description

Blue flowers resembling morning glory. Several of the best-known Thunbergia species are climbers, but this native of tropical Africa is a sprawling shrub, very useful in mixed beds or as a low hedge. It has attractive, small, dark green leaves and tubular flowers which in the most common form are rich purple with a yellow throat; there is also a white-flowering form, which seems to have smaller leaves and is somewhat less robust

The violet-blue, yellow-throated, tubular flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Environment

Grow this tender shrub in full to partial sun and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. It does poorly in alkaline or sandy sites.

T. Erecta also known as 'King's Mantle' responds well to regular pruning and can be shaped into a very bushy shrub, though this inhibits blooming.

Landscape Use

Bush Clockvine works well in a mixed border or foundation planting, or as an informal hedge..

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
