This is the first bloom on any of my newly planted Black-eyed Susan (thunbergia alata) vines. Isn't it delicate and attractive? I've planted quite a few seeds of these in various containers around my yard and also in the ground in a couple of places. These seeds have very readily sprouted and nearly all the plants are growing quickly. This plant is in the same family as my skyflower, but it makes a smaller vine that is more suitable for a container. It's a tender perennial that can be grown as an annual in areas that freeze. Plant it in full to partial sun - I'm told it appreciates a little shade in really hot afternoons. It comes in various shades of orange to very light yellow. I recently saw one of these in a nearby nursery that looked fabulous cascading out of a hanging pot. Yet another under-utilized plant in that favorite class of mine - vines. This vine is growing in a large pot that also has a night blooming jasmine in it.
