Richmond Birdwing Vine

We planted one about 6 months ago. It's now spring and is about 2 meters tall. We've lead it up via twine to a palm tree. It seems very happy but we're yet to see any flowers or butterflies. Hopefully over the summer. | Jj King - Lennox Head, NSW 04-Oct-2016

Planted in ground. Plant is a little more straggly than I expected.  The flowers have just started. Not really noticable, but it was planted for environmental reasons, to assist with getting birdwing butterflies back into the area.

I have not seen any yet.
