Pandorea pandorana 'Golden Showers' (Yellow Wonga Wonga Vine) - A vigorous evergreen vine with dark green divided leaves that are bronze tinged when first emerging. The yellow flowers with reddish-brown markings, looking like small foxgloves, are held on pendulous sprays over a long period from early spring (This selection blooms longer than the species). A good vine for covering chain link fences or on a trellis. Average garden irrigation. Hardy to 25 F. This plant came to us from the UCSC arboretum. The original selection of Pandorea 'Golden Showers' was made by the Australian National Botanic Gardens from a naturally occurring plant of Pandorea pandorana growing near Kempsey in New South Wales in 1967. The cultivar name 'Golden Showers' refers to the gold and reddish-brown pendulous inflorescences.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Pandorea 'Golden Showers'.
