Thunbergia alata
‘Amber Stripes’

Those gardeners who've enjoyed the common orange or yellow "Black-Eyed Susan" will find this new, eye-catching variety a real delight! Sporting a seemingly endless parade of 3” reddish-orange flowers, each trimmed in yellow, on vining branches, this semi-deciduous perennial starts blooming in early summer and continues nonstop till first frost. Simple green leaves blanket the 10-15' long vining stems, creating a lush backdrop. Flowers first form attractive fuzzy buds, which pop open to reveal the bright carnivalesque blooms. Perfect for growing over an arbor or along a fence, it can also be grown on a large trellis and trimmed to maintain that shape. Not fussy about soil but liking a good amount of sun, 'Amber Stripes' can be an easy way to add a long-blooming splash of color to any sunny spot. Attracts hummers and butterflies
