Pandorea Wonga Gold Sunrise
Pandorea pandorana selected form
Pandorea Wonga Gold Sunrise took us all by surprise when it bloomed in its first spring. A seedling offspring of Pandorea Wonga Gold Sunset, it was planted in expectation of it being the same as its parent. However, in place of rich gold & bronze bells, it’s an astonishing combination of purples, rose pink, gold and crimson, like an Aussie dawn. Plant Sunrise and Sunset together and enjoy the full spectrum, dawn to dusk. A climber of moderate vigour, it is useful as a light screen along a veranda or on a pergola, which is one of the nicest ways of displaying creepers, and giving shade at the same time. Happy in temperate to sub tropical climates, it needs well drained soils of neutral to acid pH; best avoid severe frost though an occasional light frost is okay. A light trim will keep it tidy.
