Mascagnia macroptera

Mascagnia macroptera is an evergreen vine from Baja California that will easily train itself to a trellis or fence. If left unsupported, this plant will twine on itself to produce a mounding shrub or even a groundcover. This blooms in spring and summer, with bright yellow orchid-shaped flowers. This is fairly drought tolerant shrub, but looks much better with regular watering through the warm season. Zone 9.
