Product Details

Product Details

Black-eyed Susan Vine (Thunbergia alata) is a 5–8' twiner that usually sports golden-yellow blooms with dark eyes, hence the common name. Sunny™ 'Lemon Star' is a selection with the same dark eyes, but they are surrounded by clear, soft yellow, a color much easier to use in the garden. Plants are vigorous growers that will climb a trellis, pole, or tripod of bamboo stakes. Use them to add height to the back of a border or a large pot. Easy to grow, Thunbergia will bloom until frost, bringing flowers up to eye level. Plants will also cascade out of a hanging basket. 'Lemon Star' PP 14,371

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Almost 10 months and counting!

I planted these above my chicken coup (spring 2020). As they started to trail down the fence, I decided to transfer to the ground surrounding the run. They began climbing and blooming again in early January 2021- So excited they are still alive! Beautiful flowers that really POP, showing off gorgeous bright yellow blooms.

The Thunbergia is an annual and will only last for one season if planted in the ground in your area. You can pot the plant in the fall and overwinter in indoors in a sunny window.

Plant Black-Eyed Susan Vine in moist but well-drained, fertile soil in a sunny location. Use an all-purpose fertilizer monthly during the growing season. This South African plant is a vigorous, twining grower so be sure to provide a trellis or pole for support. Treat as an annual, or bring indoors during cold weather.
