I love creeper type plants. They crawl all over the place, give havens to many small creatures.

Definately the 'wilde vy' the 'rots vy' is a close second. Sorry I don't know the english names but these are awesome big trees - the kind you can build a huge treehouse in! :hmz:

For those who chose the Baobab:
Did you know that there are a variety of baobab species and that the majority are native to Madagascar.

Climbing roses are beautiful and the mediterranean maritime pine trees too and what about a century old oak tree alone in the middle of a field or a very old knotty olive tree on the hills of Amalfi 8)

I'd say Canna Lilly, Baobab and then Yellow Oleander.
Managed to cultivate both the Canna Lilly and Oleander in Milan, it just convinced my other half that I was really missing Africa!

Micetta, climbing roses are fantastic and are giving me some great satisfactions.

My favourite plant is the fever trees in the Pafuri area.
Second is the impala lily and the blood lily.
