Thunbergia mysorensis - Brick and Butter Vine

Thunbergia mysorensis is a rambunctious enthusiastic grower. The brick and butter vine can swallow half a house if it is allowed to and the winter climate warm enough. Thunbergia mysorensis plants are tender at or near freezing temperatures. On the other hand the pendulous red and yellow flowers produce lots nectar and are great hummingbird attractors. And they are pretty exotic looking too if you happen to be in an area where you can grow one. Thunbergia mysorensis is native to the tropics of India.
