Bougainvillea, or what is often referred to as “paper flower,” is one of the most popular heat-tolerant vines. This plant comes with dense leaves that can protect the house from the hot sun.
Bougainvillea also has beautiful flowers in various colors such as purple, pink, orange or red. The flowers resemble paper and do not need to be watered every day. However, it must be pruned regularly to maintain its beautiful shape.
Allamanda, or golden trumpet flower, is another heat-tolerant vine that thrives in tropical temperatures. The bright yellow flowers will make your yard look exotic.
This plant comes from Central America, South America, and Brazil, and requires intense sunlight. The combination of good soil with sufficient moisture will make it grow well.
