Beaumontia grandiflora or Easter Lily Vine is a fast, vigorous growing, tropical, flowering, evergreen vine that is native to southern Asia. It is a prolific and showy bloomer with clusters of large, lightly sweet scented, yellow throated, white to cream trumpet shaped flowers with a faint maroon blush on the undersides that dangle from interesting rust toned downy calyxes. Buds begin to appear in the late winter to very early Spring and the bloom cycle last until the early summer. It is frequently at the peak of its bloom cycle around Easter.

The Easter Lily Vine is easy to grow and establishes quickly. It has large dark glossy green slightly ruffled, rippled leaves that provide dense cover quickly. The leaves of the new growth are covered with soft rust colored hairs on the undersides. It makes dense, quick cover for an arbor or pergola, or can be trained as an attractive espalier on a trellis.

.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape. 

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape in Zones 9, 10, and 11.  can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil soil in the full sun. Amend with high quality organic material as needed.
  • Locate in full sun to very lightly dappled shade.
  • Provide supplemental irrigation.
  • Feed a good quality, slow release, bloom boosting fertilize with the initial planting and twice yearly in the early Spring and early Fall thereafter. 
  • Supplement with a water soluble plant food in between feeding.
  • Prune lightly and often when young to encourage branching and after flowering to promote uniform shape and control size.
  • Protect from frost and freeze.
