Only mature plants will bloom. Location is in full sun, with plant being dry by the end of the day. There are two distinct types of Beaumontias, and probably more. Grandiflora and Murtonii. Many nurseries at this point are only beginning to diffrentiate between the two, however they are quite different and have different needs.
B. grandiflora is from northern India- blooming once a year after a sustained period of cool winter months. It does not blooom in heat,.Its flowers are long and tubular or trumpet shaped
B. murtonii is endemic to the low lands of Thailand and is a repeat bloomer with very flat held wide-opened flowers that do not come in a trumpet shape..
If you are looking for a heat loving repeat bloomer then Grandiflora Murtonii would be the choice.

This plant grows year round outdoors in San Francisco. It's a fairly large woody vine, requiring a lot of space (at least in our tiny SF yards). The foliage is very attractive, and well, no more needs to be said about he amazing flowers. Well worth the space if you have it.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
San Antonio Heights, California
San Francisco, California
Lake Alfred, Florida
Palm Beach, Florida
Olmos Park, Texas
Cabin Creek, West Virginia
