Customer Comments on Richmond Birdwing Vine
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
