Tristellateia Australasiae - Shower of Gold Climber

Botanical name: Tristellateia Australasiae

Common names: Shower of Gold, Vining Galphimia, Vining Milkweed

This is a vigorous climber with bright yellow flowers. Each flower has 5 petals and red stamens. Leaves are ovate to lance-shaped and has a lush green colour. The flowers bloom in clusters of up to 30 flowers. Native to South East Asia, it is a woody, evergreen vine that flowers the whole year through.

Here, this shower of gold climber is planted on the ground and trained on a trelis.

This picture is my entry for Mellow Yellow Monday # 36. My grateful thanks to Drowsey Monkey for hosting this fun site. For other MYM posts around the world, please click here.

  10. Bet the butterflies love that vine! Thanks for your visit, BTW.

  11. Amazing flower! I have always been fascinated by flowers. My favorite flower is the Bleeding Heart flower. I love to take them (and any other flower) apart to see how they fit together. Flowers have such interesting patterns, like little puzzles.


Yay, I have comments!
