Queen’s Wreath

On the western side of the garden fence the spectacular Queen’s Wreath (Petrea volubilis) is in colorful display. It blooms multiple times a year, but mostly between February and June. It is a tropical vine that resembles wisteria with its small lavender flowers. Unattended it can grow to 40 feet but is easy to maintain as as a bush. It grows from Zone 9B to parts of South America and can be found in Cuba, Puerto Rica and Hispaniola. The Community Garden is in the perfect climate for Queen’s Wreath. Visitors were seen recently taking photos – the color of the flowers stands out among the other plants. These photos were taken by Satya Rudin.
