Flower: Pyrostegia venusta

Found along the fence in the neighbourhood of Pt Chevalier.


With such brilliance in its flaming orange-coloured blossoms, it’s inevitable that Pyrostegia venusta has been reputed as one of the most spectacular flowering vines in cultivation. A vigorous and rambunctious climber with tendrils, Flame Vine will produce abundant clusters of brightly coloured trumpet-shaped flowers practically all year long. Truly a traffic stopper when in full bloom, especially if the vine is draped over a large pergola, fence or espaliered on a trellis or building structures.

Pyrostegia venusta (Flame Vine, Flaming Trumpet, Orange Trumpet Creeper, Golden Shower)

Wow, these are a real knock-out!!!! I don't think we have them here, I have never seen one. But we have something similar, a vine called Trumpet Vine.

Beautiful Trumpet need to know does this flower have a perfume or is it unscented (need an unscented climber) and is it frost tender.
