Description

Syn.: Tecomanthe venusta
Super unusual vine that you don’t see offered very often. A few common names for it are New Guinea creeper vine, New Guinea trumpet vine and Forest Bell Creeper. This is not related to the poisonous trumpet trees.
Everyone stops and says “wow! what is that?” when they see this plant in bloom. The unusual pink trumpet like/finger like flowers appear on the old woody stems only. We consider this to be a cold tolerant tropical vine. You can see flowers often on a mature vine.
