Bower Vine

  • Bower Vine


Pandorea jasminoides, also known as Bower Vine or Bower of Beauty, is named after Pandora, a character from Greek mythology.

It is a perennial climbing plant that blooms generously in summer. Its pale pink, trumpet-shaped flowers have deep red or pure white centres.

Its evergreen foliage is lush.

The Bower Vine appreciates plenty of sunshine and a rich soil, and requires a small but constant amount of moisture. It can be grown outdoors in mild climates, or in pots.

The flowers of the Bower Vine are delicately scented and produce both nectar and honey. They attract bees and other pollinators, hence helping to create a balanced ecosystem here at our eco-luxury campsite Les Jardins de la Pascalinette.

Did you know?

The Bower Vine's French nickname, "false jasmine", is owed to its flowers, which do indeed have a similar shape to those of jasmine (although they are larger). However, it is important to note that the Bower Vine actually belongs to the Bignoniaceae family and is not part of the Oleaceae family pertaining to jasmine.
