Coconut A-Peel® Black-Eyed Susan Vine or Thunbergia alata is an evergreen vining plant that may just be your new favorite plant. This fast-growing vine is a natural climber that can grow up to 8 feet long. The vines are dotted with lovely 5-lobed cream-colored flowers with a black eye and glossy heart-shaped foliage. This plant is very low maintenance, so you can sit back and enjoy flowers throughout the spring and summer.

Use this vining plant as a thriller in containers or engulf a landscape with greenery. This plant is a climber, and if it is not given a trellis or something to latch onto, it will find something. Plants grown in hanging baskets typically climb up the hanging supports of the baskets, and plants without a trellis will reach along the ground until encountering another plant or a building it can climb. The Coconut A-Peel® Black-Eyed Susan Vine hails from the tropics of eastern Africa. It is heat-tolerant and grows as a perennial in USDA growing zones 10 and 11. The plant is grown as an annual in other zones.

Coconut A-Peel® Black-Eyed Susan Vine Plant Care

Use rich, loamy, and well-draining soil. Black-Eyed Susan Vine prefers soil with a pH of 6.8 to 7.7. Soil should be kept evenly moist so water when the very top layer of the soil starts to dry out. Potted plants will dry out more quickly and may need water daily, especially during heat waves or dry periods. This plant needs part sun to full sun, so select a spot that receives at least 4 to 6 hours of daily sunlight. Fertilize the plant every 4 to 6 weeks to keep the vine covered in blooms during the growing season. Feed potted Black-Eyed Susan Vine every 2 to 3 weeks to support healthy, blooming plants.

Deadheading is unnecessary, but pinch back spent flowers and remove overgrowth as needed. This plant will overtake a space, so redirect or trim back wayward vines. Black-Eyed Susan Vine can be brought indoors for the winter in cold regions, but be careful because this plant is a vigorous grower that needs space.

Coconut A-Peel® Black-Eyed Susan Vine Plant Spacing

Vines are a natural fit for hanging baskets, and the Coconut A-Peel® Black-Eyed Susan Vine will not disappoint thanks to its stems that can trail up to 8 feet in length. A 12-inch container is enough space for 1 to 3 plants. This plant can spread out 18 to 24 inches, but space the plants 14 to 16 inches apart so they will have enough room but slightly overlap and create a curtain of greenery and blooms.

    My tidy bit hydrangea and coconut black eyed...

    Posted by Cecelia Parham on May 16th 2022

    My tidy bit hydrangea and coconut black eyed Susan vine came improperly packaged. They were both dumped from there pots and the hydrangea’s top was broken off. It has since died. The vine is alive but struggling. I notified you of this. The clematis I ordered is doing great.
