Thunbergia Alata - Black Eyed Susan

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:

Aubrey,

I believe what you have is a Thunbergia vine.  It is sometimes called Black-eyed Susan vine. As for care, they are real easy.  Thunbergia alata likes full sun and a well-drained but moist soil.  It is considered an annual except in tropical areas.  The best place for it is in an area that gets a little shade in the late afternoon, but full sun otherwise.  It will grow rapidly and bloom all summer through the fall.
