Thunbergia lauriflolia



Blue Trumpet Vine, Thunbergia laurifolia

Ornamental vine with showy blue-violet trumpet-shaped flowers.  This flowering vine covers most of the pergola and parameter fence at a friend's property in Tagaytay.


"Gardening is a kind of disease.  It infects you, you cannot escape it.  When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irrisistible impulse to get up and pull a weed."....in my case, to take a photo.:p

That quote fits me to a tee. I don't want to pull a weed, I'm not that fastidious about gardens anymore, I do however lust after cuttings.
Lovely shots of your delicate Thunbergia.
