Thunbergia alata Susie, a curly annual plant with a strongly branched stem that is 1.5-2.0 m long. Attractive orange flowers with a distinct black "eye" look spectacular against the background of dark green heart-shaped leaves. Characterized by rapid growth and abundant flowering. Light and warm-loving culture. Grows seedlings by sowing 2 seeds in pots. For better branching, plants pinch over 3-4 pairs of leaves. In the open soil seedlings are planted in early June at a distance of 50-60 cm from each other. It is used for vertical gardening and as an ampel plant for pendants.
