King's Mantle

 King's Mantle, Bush Clockvine, Thunbergia erecta

A West African native, King's Mantle is a herbaceous perennial climber that grows as dense shrubs.  It can grow up to 6 feet, prefers moist soil but can tolerate some drought, and it does better at partial shade.  This is one of the flowers at my aunt's garden in Antique.


The voice of beauty speaks softly; it creeps only into the most awakened souls. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
