Planting and care

This vigorous vine grows in full sun, with a southern exposure, but stays greener and prettier with a little shade protection from the blazing afternoon sunshine, especially in warmer climates. Water the plant when the soil is dry, and fertilize in spring and fall with a granular fertilizer.
Prune after the blooming cycle is over to encourage a quick re-sprout, and prune again in late summer. When winter comes close, mulch the roots with pine needles or other organic material.

Sky vine (Thunbergia grandiflora), also commonly referred to as clock vine, a member of the tropical Acanthaceae family and is an evergreen in frost free climates, where it also produces fruits, but growth slows or stops in cool temperatures. It is hardy in Zones 8-11.
