PANDOREA

Pandorea jasminoides is a species of woody climbing vine in the family Bignoniaceae. It is native to Queensland, Australia. It forms large pointed pods filled with papery seeds. It is easy to germinate, having two-lobed dicotyledons. It grows quite well in Greece. Flowers range from magenta to white, often with a darker trumpet, and produce a fragrant, jasmine-like scent.


TECOMA STANS

This perennial shrub is known by the common english name Yellow Trumpetbush. It is native to South and Central America, Mexico and the southwestern United States. It has been introduced to several other regions, including north and south Africa, the Philippines and Hawaii. It has become a nuisance weed on several Pacific islands, especially in French Polynesia where it is called piti.
It is an attractive plant which is cultivated as an ornamental. It has sharply-toothed, lance-shaped green leaves and bears large, showy, bright golden yellow trumpet-shaped flowers. It is drought-tolerant and grows well in warm climates. The flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The plant produces pods containing yellow seeds with papery wings. The plant is desirable fodder when it grows in fields grazed by livestock.
The leaves and roots of the plant contain bioactive compounds, especially monoterpenes, which may have medicinal uses.
It readily colonizes disturbed, rocky, sandy, and cleared land and occasionally becomes an invasive weed.
It is the national flower of The Bahamas
