Thunbergia African Sunset prefers a warm place in the winter and will be damaged or
killed with even a light frost. The Black Eyed Susan Vine relatives are not nearly as
aggressive nor as hardy as Thunbergia gregorii,
but has much the same fuzzy wrinkled leaves and tendrils. The African Sunset flowers
fade as they age. This gives the plant an unusual variety of colors. Thunbergia African
Sunset will perform well even in lightly shaded locations. In the banana belt portions of
the inland valleys I try to plant Thunbergia alata against the house to take advantage of
a little shared warmth.
