Pandorea pandorana subsp. pandorana
Very Common

This vigorous, woody climber has opposite, compound leaves, with 2‒4 pairs of leaflets on very short stalks and a terminal leaflet. Long branches hang down from trees covered with large, loose clusters of white to cream tubular flowers, up to 2 cm long with purplish markings inside the throat. These are most noticeable in spring. An elongate capsule about 7 cm long and ripening from February to March splits in two to liberate many papery, winged seeds.

The leaves on young vines have up to eight pairs of small, toothed leaflets, quite different to those on the adult plant. The vines may drop their leaves in winter due to low temperatures.
