Easter Lily Vine
Hidden among rocks and trees in forests from China to the East Indies is Beaumontia grandiflora, an evergreen climbing vine full of life and energy that has been found to grow in elevations of up to 5,000 feet. Aromatically sweet, the light scent is magnificent. Delicate white trumpet shaped blossoms emerge making a stunning contrast to the green, large glossy leaves. Beaumontia grandiflora thrives in subtropical climates, and grows best when planted in rich soil, is given adequate water and is placed in full sunlight, or light shade. Great for container gardening or the deck.
