Bower Plant Overview

A genus of 9 accepted species of twining, woody climbing plants in the Bignoniaceae family native to tropical and subtropical regions in the Southwestern Pacific including Australia, Malesia and New Caledonia. They have pinnate leaves and clusters of fragrant 5-petalled trumpet-shaped flowers. Two Australian species, P. jasminoides (Bower vine), and P. pandorana (wonga vine) are commonly cultivated as garden ornamentals. They need a sheltered position and winter protection in colder climates.
