  Podranea ricasoliana - Port St. John’s Creeper
 
Podranea ricasoliana
Podranea ricasoliana planted in front of the nursery
 
The common name of this candy-striped pink flowering vine is Port St. John’s Creeper, named after the location in South Africa from which it is native. This evergreen member of the Bignonia family (Bignoniaceae) can grow to 16-20 feet tall and can spread equally as wide. Although often listed as very tender, this vine can tolerate winter temperatures in the low 20 degrees F with just tip damage. Plant in full sun and water occasionally to infrequently during the warmer months of the year. In mild California coastal gardens this beautiful vine will bloom for much of the year. Good also as a groundcover sprawling over rocks, even tolerating coastal sea spray. The name podranea is an anagram of the name for the closely related Austalian plant Pandorea
