The Rangoon Creeper: A Beautiful Blooming Vine

If you are looking for a fast growing vine to cover a fence and have beautiful blossoms all summer long, the Rangoon Creeper is a good choice. The one I planted a year ago has almost covered the chain link fence I installed in my front yard to provide a safe play yard for my Miniature Schnauzer, Baby.

I would have preferred a pretty wooden fence, but I live in Hurricane country. After the last hurricane barreled through our neighborhood three years ago and knocked down many of these wooden fences, I knew I didn’t want to take that chance.

I tried planting vines on the chain link fence


When I complained to a friend I didn’t like the looks of the chain link fence, she suggested I plant some vines along the fence. I had visions of beautiful flower covered vines completely covering the stark ugly fence. Well, I planted two different vines: A Florida Honeysuckle and a Passion Flower vine. At first these vines grew fast, but after several weeks they just died. I watered them and cared for them, but it just didn't matter. I live in South Florida (planting zone: 9) and our soil is mostly sand, and unless you bring in lots of good topsoil, it is almost impossible to grow plants. I gave up trying to grow flowers in my yard long ago. Now, I grow my flowers in containers. I like that because I can move the pots around wherever I want to enjoy them. I am hardheaded so I kept on trying to grow something on the fence. My last attempt to cover the chain link fence was Morning Glories. Again, they started out great, but soon died.

A friend suggested the Rangoon Creeper


Another friend suggested I try the Rangoon Creeper. I had never heard of this vine, but she said she had one growing on a fence in her yard and it was in full bloom and very beautiful. I went to her house and she was right. The vine she had was indescribably beautiful. I’d never seen anything quite like it. The blossoms hung down in clusters and had red, pink and white colors on the same blossom! The vine covered her chain link fence completely. I was sold on the idea of planning a Rangoon Creeper. The soil in her yard was like mine: sandy.

My friend brought me a potted Rangoon Creeper


I was discouraged when I couldn’t find the Rangoon Creeper at any of our local plant nurseries or stores that sell plants. I stopped even thinking about the vine. Then, one day she showed up at my house with a plant in an eight inch plastic pot. She said she had rooted a Rangoon Creeper for me. She told me this vine is easily rooted or you can save seeds after the flowers have died back and plant those.

I chose a spot in the corner of the fence, and dug a nice hole for the vine she gave me. She said it will grow in full sun or partial sun. My spot is in full sun.

The Rangoon Creeper begins to grow!


The Rangoon Creeper began to grow and within six months it started to bud and bloom. I was so happy! The vine bloomed all summer long, and I was very pleased. Then December came and the plant began to look like it was dying. My friend said not to worry, it is a perennial, meaning it will go down now but will come back in the spring. I was so convinced the vine was dead I almost pulled it out of the ground and tossed it. I decided to just leave the roots in the ground. I’m glad I didn’t toss the plant, because when February rolled around, I could see some new growth. By April the vine was almost covering the fence.


All summer long the Rangoon Creeper has bloomed. Not only is the Rangoon Creeper a beautiful vine that thrives in sandy soil and hot sun, the blooms have a very nice fragrance. Another bonus is the Rangoon Creeper is fast growing. I am now in the process of making cuttings to share with my friends so they, too, can enjoy this vine.

I recommend the Rangoon Creeper

I really can't say enough about the Rangoon Creeper if you are looking for a beautiful, flowering vine that will grow fast and bloom all summer long. It is easy to propagate by cuttings or by the seeds.

I have included a good video on how to propagate Clematis vine, but you would use the same technique to propagate Rangoon Creeper.

Wow, I've never heard of this vine before, but I have been looking for something to cover a chain linked fence that runs along one side of our home, and this is perfect and beautiful!!! I live in Alabama, and my spot would be sunny, but the soil is not sandy. I hope I can find it somewhere here. We used to lived in Tampa down your way back when my husband was in the Air Force long ago. Thanks so much for this well-written hub with the gorgeous photos too. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Hi Glimmer Twin Fan, I don't know where you live. If you are in a cold climate, the Rangoon Creeper probably would not grow. I have now added a planting zone map to make it easier for readers to check to see if this vine would do well in their zone.

This is a lovely hub with beautiful photos, Mary. I've never heard of a Rangoon Creeper before, but I love the plant's appearance. It looks like it's a great plant to have in a garden - it's attractive, and its climbing ability is very helpful in hiding a less attractive object. Thanks for the information.

beautiful creeper,mary.

I love creeper's cause they help to cover the fence and also add foliage. I have a creeper growing but somehow it has shifted more towards my neighbor's side. will give this a try since; it's low maintenance and yet good flowering plant.

many votes as useful.

What a gorgeous plant! You took wonderful pictures of it. I am however very disappointed. I live in zone 8, my Oregon winters get too cold for it. I love love love vines and so wanted to plant this one as soon as I saw your first picture! This is a great hub, very informative. Voted up!

Hi, Mama Kim, Thanks for reading and for the compliment on my photography! Boy, zone 8 is just right on the line according to the info. If I were you , I'd get one and just try it. The Rangoon Creeper goes down in the Fall and Winter but comes back in the spring. It might be worth the gamble to see how it does, you know???

Good Morning, tammyswallow. You are probably right. The Rangoon Creeper is more of a "warm climate" vine. Would just depend on how cold it gets in your "neck of the woods". You could check the zone map.

Beautiful country where you are, though.

MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 4 years ago

I have never heard of the Rangoon Creeper, but it is lovely. I checked the zone maps and it is out for my area, the top edge of the lower South, zone 8, so that is probably why. I like your idea of covering a chain link fence. I live in the county, so I can build whatever kind of fence I please, but my son lives in the city, and the ordinance in his part of town says no fences over 4 feet tall in front yards, and they must be transparent. Other than chain link, there are not many fitting that description. However, if a vine “just happened to grow on one”, I doubt that the city would make him cut it down. Just an idea. Good hub.

Hi MizBejabbers, Yes, sounds like your zone might be a little cold for the Rangoon Creeper. That's too bad. Maybe your son could grow one on his fence. I just dislike the look of a chain link fence and I'm so happy to have this beautifu vine covering it.

Hi, Vinaya. You just asked a great question and one I can't answer. If your temperature is warm, that would explain why it grows there. As far as its origin, I don't know why it's called Rangoon Creeper.

Mine is still in full bloom and is just beautiful, I love it. Mary

Mary, the name 'Rangoon Creeper' did not register, put the picture did. I was rather surprised to find someone from Florida write about this creeper, as I thought this was a quintessential tropical plant common to Indian peninsula; well, I do not know much about plants! This creeper is known as 'Madhabilata' in my mother tongue, which is Bengali (same as of Bangladesh). It is more or less a common houseplant, but well loved. Most summer flowering plants have mild, sweet smell- and usually pale or white color. As we have only mild winter, the plant never dies and nearly flowers year round. It is lovely to know we share the same objects of joy even across the globe, doesn't it? You did a wonderful hub and I too came to know a lot of things about the plant, from you. I saw the plant for the first time when I was around 14; since that day I have been in love with her.

mary615 3 years ago from Florida Author

Hi sen.sush23. Thanks so much for adding that additional info on the Rangoon Creeper. Mine is in full bloom right now and should remain in bloom until the Fall. I can't imagine this vine being grown indooors, but I just might try.

Thanks for the nice compliment on my Hub, and for your informational comment.

sen.sush23 profile image

sen.sush23 3 years ago from Kolkata, India

Sorry, Mary, I think there was a communication error. House plant- I did not mean indoor plant, I just meant to say every other house has this creeper on their fence or garden. I do think it may lose its character if restricted to a pot. :)


sen.sush23 profile image

sen.sush23 3 years ago from Kolkata, India

Mary, I think I miscommunicated. I meant (by house plant) not an indoor plant, but one that is grown by most houses in this Eastern side of India. I too do not think this plant can retain its character in a restricted pot. It has a much too happy and luxuriant nature. :)

Beautiful hub and what lovely pictures!

I am quite familiar with these beautiful flowers as this creeper plant is very commonly grown in India. And as you mentioned it is grown generally as fencing plant. They do not require much look after as well yet look gorgeous.

A very well presented hub, voted up and pinned!

mary615 24 months ago from Florida Author

Good Morning, ChitrangadaSharan . From what I have learned about India, your climate is similar to that of ours. You are so right, once the Rangoon Creeper is planted, it just "takes off" and rewards one with a beautiful vine that bloom all summer long here.

Thank you for the nice compliment, the votes, and the Pin, Mary
