Large, 3", pure white trumpets with yellow throats adorn this vigorous perennial vine over a long period from fall through spring, and are borne in clusters in the leaf axils. The white sky vine is identical the more common blue sky vine, but the pure white flower color actually stands out more in the landscape, making it more useful from a design perspective.
This is a very vigorous vine that can easily cover a 20' trellis within one year, and is considered a root hardy perennial into USDA Zone 8. The dark green, velvety, ivy-shaped foliage provides a nice foil for the blossoms.
White sky vine flowers best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil of average fertility, but it can tolerate partial shade quite well and still bloom admirably. In South Florida this vine is vigorous to a fault, and it can easily swallow up other residents of the garden. Therefore, careful siting is a must; don't be afraid to prune this vine back if it begins to overstep its boundaries. It is best used over a large pergola or arbor where its rampant growth and large size are assets rather than liabilities.
