Pandorea baileyana, sometimes referred to as the large-leaved wonga vine, is a species of woody climbing vine in the family Bignoniaceae. This species grows in the subtropical and warm-temperate rainforests of northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, Australia.

Description

Growing across the forest floor and/or up trees via tendrils, it has compound, evergreen leaves which are 13 to 30cm long at full maturity. In late spring it produces multiple stem-held masses of 2mm long, cream coloured flowers which are created for the purpose of pollination. It then produces yellow fruit of oblong-ovid shape, 4 to 7 cm long, containing numerous seeds. They are circular, flat, winged and 1 to 1.5 cm in diameter. This plant is rarely found outside of its native setting, although a specimen is found at the ANBG in Canberra.
