    You’re welcome! I myself would be reluctant to grow this beautiful but invasive vine in the warm climate zone like FL. Maybe these included links can help you further in growing this vine. Best wishes S Schmick! Laura https://abc-pestcontrol.com/vines-by-mark-govan-host-florida-gardening/

    Should I be concerned about its invasiveness? Or that it attracts carpenter bees?

    Thank you. I love Thungbergia. I think my husband got it for me and what threw me off is he said it was a basil of some sort. Very excited to have this.

    Looks like something in the Thunbergia genus. This could be either Bengal clock vine (Thunbergia grandiflora) or laurel clock vine (T. laurifolia). I’m not an expert on this genus, but I’m leaning toward T. grandiflora (Bengal clock vine) (?). Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunbergia_grandiflora
