Thunbergia alata 'Suzie Orange with Eye' (Suzie Series)

black-eyed Susan vine

Availability: to order from spring 9cm pot

Product description

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well drained
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)

    Producing an abundance of flowers over several months, this fast growing climber can be grown in a pot, hanging basket or sunny border. Strictly speaking it is a tender perennial, but if you want to over-winter it, you will need to do so in a warm conservatory or greenhouse. Otherwise treat it as an annual and replace it every year - it's a very good investment!

  • Garden care: Keep under glass where temperatures dip below 5C, only moving outside after the frosts have passed. A twining climber, it will need support, and it should be watered freely when in growth - and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly.
