Queen of Sheba Overview

Podranea brycei is an evergreen climber in the Bignoniaceae family. It produces glossy green oval to lance-shaped foliage similar to that of Wisteria and showy, pink, trumpet-shaped blooms. Originating from Southern Africa, the pretty pink flowers are scented and typically last all summer, appearing above the foliage.
