Quisqualis indica or Rangoon Creeper
The newest addition to my scented collection. I was looking for something for full sun with an unusual fragrance and this is what I found .
it's still in its plastic pot right now so I brought inside and the whole room is filled with a sweet musky melon like smell.
I cant wait to repot it and let it take over the trellis.

I love my Rangoon, No one around here even realized it grew outside here. I had someone at the nursery today who brought one back from Costa Rica and she put it in a big pot. I told her come look out back and see mine, way up into the live oak. She was so happy when she found out she could put it in the ground. I'm actually bordering 8b.

I've always seen it listed as only being hardy to zone 10, I do know a few people in zone 9 who've had them winter over, but if you're any lower than that there's a good chance it won't make it. I'm chicken so I keep mine in the greenhouse for the winter.

Cheers RJ
This is a first for me...so if you don't mind... could you help me out here

I am guessing that these are the pods you are talking about.

Do they need to mature on the plant or do i pick them off now?
l already have some requests for seeds by dmail so do i dry them first and how?
Can I send them to people now and let them dry them?
Last one
Will a pot/seed take off if I just plant one right in the same pot with mother , or do i have to start yet another project?

Thank You
Neil

DMG, maybe musk isn't the right word but its very a mellow heavy melon fragrance , unlike the sweet sharper ones Im used to with tropicals.

Hey Neil-
I think the pod/seed I've noticed is mature when it is a brown color. Having said this, I must admit that I only accidentally found out that the pod WAS the seed, when I was clearing an area the rangoon creeper occupied, and I found the rangoon sprout emerged from the whole pod.

Here is the photo- you can see the seed is brown, and the seedling sprouting right out of the whole pod.

I can imagine you could plant the seed in the mother pot, but I think you might enjoy better success and eniornmental control for the seedling if you plant it in a small pot.

I Just wanted to post an update on the creeper. I've never seen anything grow like it.

It's been in its new pot against a trellace now for about 8 weeks, and I've had to trim it twice already to get it growing in the direction I want. Right now it has so many blooms its unbelievable. The pictures are only from the front of the trellace, the back side has just as many blooms if not more and the whole front garden smells amazing when you get within 30ft of it .

i'll collect some more seeds this time, as I didn't have enough to go around last batch.

Missy...why didn't you tell me you wanted a Rangoon!!? I have a small one started...there was room in the box..
I have a funny story about the seeds. A few years ago, I kept seeing these fat little seed pods appear on the rangoon. I plucked a few and saved them, but it seemed like there were never any seeds in the pod. I pried a few open ..nothing..I did this for a couple of years, then one rainy spring I lost the rangoon in the back from flooding...all bummed out because it was a spectacular performer, I was clearing out the area..and of all things I found this little plant sprout growing amongst the leaves..I examined it and saw it was still attached to the seed pod, sort of looked like a small pecan (I'm always pulling those up everywhere) but the leaves didn't look like the pecan- and then the moment of revelation hit me...it was a ragoon, and .it wasn't a seed "pod" it was THE seed.. It sort of defies the normal vine seeding habit. I had no clue...

I agree and I always dig the rooted ones when they are seen. I planted mine on a fence but near a row of ligustrum(sp) and they run throught them when they bloom. I'm afraid to move it as it has been in the ground for at least 10 years. Has anyone moved one and it was ok? I tried the cuttings and was not successful.

Yes cuttings are very hard. I have one growing. Seems like I can produce 1 cutting every couple of years.
I've moved Rangoons before, and it depends on what your goal is, as they are not a quick recovery. it will take 1 or 2 years for it to adjust to a new spot and bloom like your use to it blooming.

Yes, they do pretty good in a pot. They seem to be a bit more fussy in a pot though. Would recommend a clay pot, so that it doesn't stay too wet, and not too dry.
when I had one in a pot, I would set it on the ground in a place in the garden so the roots would grow through the pot. It seemed better able to regulate better. In fact I've noticed that on alot of vines, (at least for this climate here)

It is fairly easy to make Spring cuttings from the tips ...in sandy mix keep misted in a warm shade place. Good luck with it. Yes it is a tropical vine and will grow in most places here ...I am about 40 miles inland from Sydney and it's warm enough here providing you let it romp away through a tree in a warm micro climate ...I get frost here but not in the position my creeper grows in.

Astgirl that's great news about your blooms!
Wow! Your flowers look larger than mine... I am pretty sure I have the single variety.
I hope I can find seeds too. Mine has been blooming almost continuously since July.
I keep looking and no sign of them...there were lots of tiny wasps/bees on the flowers this year ...fingers crossed.

I did manage to get two out of about 10 cuttings to root.

Next I will try the soda bottle method and see if that helps keep them moist enough to get a higher percentage to root. Would love to be able to offer these for trade next spring.

Any one know of a picture of seeds while still on the plant?

I received mine in a trade around 3 yrs ago. This is the first year it has bloomed. I haven't fertilized it as yet but I did follow Randy's advice and cut it way back the beginning of spring and it took off like lightening afterwards. Hasn't been a heavy bloomer but I will try next spring and see if it makes a difference. Any advice on starting the seeds if they develop?

I've grown several ..and so far for me...3 years is the magic number for a fabulous bloom.

Those are good looking seed pods...may I reference them in my blog? I have a whole Rangoon creeper category...and don't have the seeds on the vine pictured.
It's been difficult for the seeds to grow to maturity ..as big as yours are. ...most of the times they die away before getting that big.

Hi Randy
You can use the photos whenever you like. I do hope they make it to maturity. There are a few "bunches that I can see but it goes over the top of the old dog kennel it is growing on so I too will have to get the ladder to check the rest of the vine. I've never had luck getting cuttings to root so I'm hoping for a few seeds to start for some friends.

Randy, What brand Hibiscus fertilizer do you use on your creepers?

I found some Espoma Plant Tone for Tropicals 4-1-5. Is that the one you use? The numbers seem a little low. I have looked for the thread where you were talking about it but can't find it. Thought I had it tagged but don't.

Thank You, That is the information I was looking for.

I may have lost one of mine over winter, One little stalk is trying to grow. The other one is looking good. Thought it was time to pamper it.

Randy, Just wanted to say thankyou for your advice on fertilizing the Rangoon Creeper, I did as you had suggested and this year it is just amazing. So many blooms. I just love this plant so much.

I just love the melon scent of this plant in the humidity. I have it placed right outside my lanai so it wafts inside when I open the doors, morning and evening it is equally strong. I was even over in the neighbors yard yesterday and we could smell it from there.

Here's a close up...beautiful colors

Mine isn't blooming yet but I cut it way back in early March. I do have a seedling coming up from a seed I put in a pot at work. It germinated under a flourescent light mounted under a shelf.

rangoon creepers smell reminds me of green apples/melons. i got mine from an neighbor's which had grown over a fence and draped over almost on the ground of mine. when i was cutting them back i noticed there were babies all over from the seeds that had fallen. then when i moved from that house i was so glad i had some seeds to bring here. i have a couple double rangoons as well one in a pot and one in the ground. they are relatively new so i am curious to see the difference in flowers. no flowers yet to show.
