Thunbergia fragrans Roxb.


Thunbergia fragrans is a perennial climber and is native to India and Southern Asia but widespread in the tropics including Florida[2] Hawaii,[3] Australia,[4] New Caledonia, French Polynesia,[5] Caribbean[6] and Indian Ocean islands,[7] southern Africa and Central America[8] In many places it is considered as an invasive species. Despite its name, the flowers are not fragrant but the plant puts out a scent from the vine or leaves.


I found this vine growing roadside on a small side street between businesses and residences in Valrico, Florida.

I have corrected the spelling of fragrans and also made the f in lower case. I hope you did not mind.
