Maurandya barclayana (syn. Asarina barclayana; orth. var. M. barclaiana), commonly called angels trumpet[1] or Mexican viper,[2] is an ornamental plant in the family Plantaginaceae native to Mexico. Growing to 4 m (13 ft) in height, this herbaceous perennial climber has ivy-like leaves and white, pink or purple tubular flowers. As it does not tolerate being frozen, in temperate climates it is often grown under glass in a conservatory, or alternatively as a tender annual. It requires a sheltered position in full sun. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. [1]
