I posted this photo over in the coleus forum, and now they want it. Name please? Yes, I know it's a tropical weed, but maybe it'll behave as an annual...
tTropical wildflower/weed ID please?
Looks like Thunbergia, T. grandiflora maybe? Is it a vine or shrub?
It's a small plant, an annual in the States, it would be. The stems are straight and have nodes that easily sprout roots. If it's near something like a bush or chain link fence, it climbs, but has no tendrils. Can stand dry conditions.
I have heard that it's a pest in Hawaii.
But I like having some because the butterflies and bees are on it constantly. I guess it really has a lot of nectar. I put a Desert Rose right in with it, but the bees ignored the DR, boo.
The leaves aren't right for Thunbergia grandiflora.
Maybe Thunbergia laurifolia, Laurel Leaved Trumpet Vine.
Metro, a weed in Hawaii? not a vine here,,, but a vine has tendrils???
metro, I know you have real name, and I am embaresed..... odear...
Just browsing through and came across your pic Molamola. Heres your plant. http://images.google.com.au/images?hl=en&source=hp&q=asystasia%20gangetica&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi
Thunbergia laurifolia is similar to T. grandiflora but the leaves have no teeth.
It is a liana, but has no tendrils. Does your plant climb up over things.
It is a weed in Hawai'i, but not as invasive as T. grandiflora, yet!
OK, tomorrow! Big Photo excursion! ...actually, thanks for asking, Dave
