Pandorea (P. jasminoides) is an attractive native creeper that has glossy leaves and pink-purple trumpet-like flowers  produced in flushes during Spring and Summer.  ‘Lady Di’ is a variety that produces pure white flowers.


How to grow pandorea in a garden

  1. Choose a place in the garden that gets full sun to half shade. Prepare the planting area well by digging in Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
  2. Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball. 
  3. Carefully remove the plant from the pot ensuring not to disturb any of the roots.
  4. Position in hole and backfill with soil, gently firming down. Form a raised or doughnut shaped ring of soil around the outer edge of the plant's root zone. This helps keep water where it's needed.  Always water in well after planting to settle the soil around the roots and keep the soil moist for several weeks while the new plant establishes.
  5. Mulch around the base with organic mulch, keeping it away from the base of the plant.
  6. Feed in Autumn and Spring with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser to ensure strong root development.

Growing tips

  • If growing as a climbing plant, ensure that you provide a supporting structure, such as a trellis.
  • Not suitable for cooler climates due to its low tolerance to frosts.
  • P. pandorana, commonly known as wonga-wonga vine, is a similar creeper, but has small, creamy-white, tubular flowers that appear in clusters during spring. This variety is more suited to the cooler climates and can tolerate some frosts.
