Tropical Crossvine Bignonia Capreolata
The Crossvine is very difficult to get and they are only sold a few times out of the year. I will try to put up the products when they come available so you can grow these tropical beauties in your garden.
These brightly colored flowers are surrounded by very lush green leafs that are the main attraction when it comes to butterflies... hummingbirds... and those cute little bees that we seriously cant live without to pollinate our trees, fruits and flowers.
The main reason this vine is grown is for its bell shaped flowers and its ability to rapidly cover structures with attractive foliage, its leaves are composed of two oblong or lanceolate leaflets, up to 5 inches long that are quite striking as far as foliage goes.
Known as a tropical American evergreen vine the B capreolata is a relative of the bignonia family that bears tendrils, compound leaves, and trumpet-shaped flowers, but I like these Much better because of the fact that its a vine and you get more coverage throughout your garden to climb up walls or wrap around trees.
It grows great in full sun and slightly moist, fertile soils, in climates with mild winter, it does its best in Zones 8 to 11 in order for it to produce its showy flowers.
The common name of "crossvine" came about because of the cross-shaped pith revealed when the stem is cut, it’s quite amazing!
