I bought this years ago as a Confederate Jasmine and it finally bloomed this week. It is not what I thought it was but is quite pretty. Can you name this for me?
Thank you

I have a Pandorea and it is not that. This has thicker, bigger leaves. I don't think it is Cross vine either. I just looked that up and I don't think that is it. It is evergreen and not invasive.
These blooms took me by surprise.

I think its Thunbergia grandiflora as ti looks blue to me

Thunbergia

If the flower is more pink than blue then it is Podranea ricasoliana.

Baa,

Flowers are similar to thunbergia grandiflora, but leaves are not.

This morning when I saw it the flowers appeared to be blue, now I see they are pink with heavy veining.

I now think that this vine is my second choice Podranea.

PS
I'm so rude today, it's been a long hard day. My apologies, I should have written

Tim I think you are correct in this not being T grandiflora :)

It was a great surprise and it is pretty. I will try and make more of it this summer. It loves to grow so maybe it won't be hard to do.

I'm new to Daves Garden & am enjoying it so much! Do any of you have any good vines for a trellis in Zone 6-7? I need it to be something vigorous, with lots of flowers the first year. I was thinking of Clematis x Jackmanii and mixing it with an Ipomea tricolor. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks anyway for the reply, Weeds. I think I'm going to try posting this question on its own and see if I get an answer. Happy gardening...
