Flame Vine, Flor-de São-João in Portuguese.

This beautiful blooming climber shrub is Pyrostegia venusta, commonly known as Flame Vine or Orange Trumpet Creeper. This evergreen shrub is original from Brazil, commonly known as Flor-de-São-João in Portuguese. The best show of Pyrostegia venusta is in June and July. In this time of the year we can see the Flame Vine climbing on trees all around at Enseada Azul.
Flor-de-São-João attracts many hummingbirds.

With its brilliant orange flowers, the Pyrostegia venusta is ideal for growing over a pergola or a sturdy fence. The higher the support the better, as the flowers can hang down for the best effect. This plant enjoys a frost free climate and a sunny position.

FAMILY : Bignoniaceae
ORIGIN : Brazil
SIZE : vine
LIGHT REQUIREMENTS : full sun
WATER REQUIREMENTS : average
MIN. TEMP. : high 20°s

  8. Thank you so much PAULA, NAOMI, WENDY, JUDY, MEOW and DEANA for your visiting and nice comment.

    PAULA about grows on, here the answer:
    Propagation: Cuttings, suckers, layers
    Cultural Practices: Cut down after the vine has finished blooming.
    Blooming Habits: Bright orange flowers, 2 to 3 inches long (5-7.5 cm), with corolla tubes reflexed, white hairs on the edges. They are grouped by up to 20 in a compact cluster. The flame vine blooms mostly in winter (January-February).
    Fruiting Habits: Pod, 10 to 12 inches long (25-30 cm).

  10. I love this pretty climber Sonia!! I love the color and I'll bet the bees and hummingbirds love it! (You do have hummingbirds there I assume).

    I tried to grow a trumpet flower vine once but it didn't do so well.

    Very, very pretty!! Thanks Sonia!!

  12. I really like this vine which we have hybridized in the U.S. It is a welcoming haven for hummingbirds, so it will probably find a place in my woods.

  14. Hot hot hot the feeling I get as I view these photos and I can imagine the hummingbirds stopping by! The lake is so refreshing! These are good photos for me to view during our cold winter...in the meantime I enjoy the summer heat!!

  15. As always, more beautiful photos on your blog!

    I have trumpet vine here but nothing - nothing like the fantastic size and color in your photos!

  16. Gorgeous - like Endment said - can't compare to our Trumpet Vine.

  17. One of my favorites here is our 'Trumpet Vine' which the hummingbirds love so, but yours is incredible. Now, that's a Trumpet Vine! Beautiful photos & lovely shade of orange.

  18. What a beautiful place to live. You're so fortunate.

  19. These vines are beautiful, Sonia. I wish they grew here!

  20. Those blossoms are so vibrant! Beautiful photos Sonia.
    This vine sure looks like it's taking over. Beautiful to look at but hard to get rid of! Very interesting to see it in it's natural state.

  21. That photo with the vine going over to the electricity pole is rather frightening!

    I think this is a plant I would not plant, even worse than the potato vine here in Australia.

  22. Amazingly beautiful wide open country, these photographs make my heart ache for such a spacious paradise.

  23. We have a trumpet creeper vine here in the United States that looks similar to your flame vine.

    Your flame vine is beautiful and thanks for letting me walk along with you, your husband and Flora.
