Roger’s Pick for a punch of color is Queen’s Wreath


Last updated 9/4/2017 at Noon

A Queen's Wreath blooms in Roger Boddaert's garden.

If you’re looking for a flowering vine that will give you some sporadic blooms throughout the year….it’s Petrea volubilis orcommonly called Queen’s Wreath in the verbenaceae family.

This semi-evergreen twinning vine is a native from southern Mexico down south to South America and into Paraguay. You can also find it growing in profusion throughout the Caribbean islands as well.

She likes full sunshine to dappled light and is a strong grower over an arbor, trellis and even espaliered onto a fence. It is tender to about 32 degrees….so find a warm spot for her in your garden setting...
