BRAZILIAN FLAME VINE...FLOR-DE-SÃO-JOÃO...








The weather here has been beautiful. The sun is shining and is pleasantly warm and the sky is a beautiful blue. In my neighborhood we came across with more Flame Vine, Flor-de-São João in Portuguese. They are beautiful and we couldn't pass without taking more photos.




More information about Flame Vine

Flame Vine (Pyrostegia venusta), "is a woody climber that climbs with its tendrils. Has ability to smother trees. Gardeners must spend a great deal of energy to prevent the plant from overwhelming everything. Flame Vine is no toxic to animals, is not parasitic, don’t causes allergies or is otherwise toxic to humans, don’t creates a fire hazard in natural ecosystems, tolerates a wide range of soil conditions (or limestone conditions if not a volcanic island) and no propagules bird dispersed. This ornamental climber has become an invasive weed in São Paulo crops and studies of its reproductive cycle were conducted as part of a program to investigate its control."





"Flame vine, with its showy red-orange flowers, was brought to the United States from Brazil for landscape purposes. It was planted as a landscape vine at Archbold Biological Station's. Flame Vine is considered locally invasive or show potential to become invasive at Archbold Biological Station, but are not listed as Category I or II by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council. This two category are about invasive exotics that are altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives."




"This trailing or climbing evergreen vine is known for it's bright orange tubular flowers that bloom in February to April. It's leaves are compound with two leaflets. No fruits have been observed on this plant at Archbold Biological Station. This species forms numerous matrices of trailing vines that attach to limbs and branches by tendrils and spread high into the canopy. Flame vine is easily propagated by stem fragmentation, which appears to have caused the spread of this plant along the fire lanes in the NE Tract at Archbold.

  7. What a beautiful vine! Is it considered a weed? An unwanted invasive plant?
    It's name is perfect, in't it?

  8. That trumpet creeper is grown a lot in gardens here in Australia. Just this week I was admiring the one that we planted several years ago beside a tree - its flowers are now visible in the top branches. But it doesn't compare with the ones you photographed in their true environment. Magnificent.

    Selon les variétés , les feuilles sont plus ou moins rouges , oranges , jaunes , vertes , marron ... Un feu d'artifice !

  15. It reminds me of the trumpent vine that grows in the Midwest - it will take over. But, oh, the hummingbirds love it and the box turtles ate it's buds. That was something I will never forget - a happy box turtle chomping on flower buds.

  25. Hi, Sonia--what a pretty walk you have! Unpaved roads are the best! You took some beautiful photos. The vine color almost matches your soil. I love seeing what color soil everybody has--there is such an array of color, depending upon where you live (garden!).

    Em junho estive em Avaré e faço o roteiro da viagem por Piracicaba e Anhembi.
    A estrada parecia um tapete de flores de São João era um tapete alaranjado...mas estava com pressa e não pude fotografar as flores que por sinal adoro.Domingo plantei quatro mudas na minha chácara aqui em Campinas.
    Essse ano as flores floriram mais do que no ano passado, vc não achou?
