Thunbergia alata Yellow Plant care and instructions
Black-Eyed Susan Vines are only hardy in USDA zones 9-12. They should be grown in a spot with full sun or very light shade, except in hot summer regions where they will require shade during the afternoon. In the garden, Thunbergii should be planted in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soil that has been supplemented with a generous amount of compost at planting time, or in a good quality potting soil if they are grown in planters.
Light – Full Sun to Part Shade
Place – Needs to be kept in a place where they can get partial sunlight.
Water – Medium
Fertilizer – Apply any organic fertilizer
Temperature – 70 degrees F
Used mainly as an ornamental plant, Thunbergia alata makes a good screen when used to cover unsightly dead trees or walls. It needs some support, as it cannot cling. Use fences, trellises, arches, arbors, and pillars, or a lightly shading tree. (Pergolas would probably be too big.) Alternatively, plant this creeper in groups as a ground cover, or on a bank or terraces where it can trail downwards. Hanging baskets are also a possibility.
