I have a Podranea Ricasoliana
I had lots last year but only a few this time.
Maybe I pruned it the wrong time of the year? [dunno]

http://www.plantzafrica.com/plantnop/podranricasol.htm

from the same site:

quote:
It will need pruning to be kept neat, and to keep it down to shrub size it should be pruned back hard every year. Pruning will also improve flowering. The best time for pruning is in winter or early spring just before new growth commences. It is known to sprout where prunings have been thrown, and it is an invasive garden escape in parts of Queensland and New South Wales in Australia and in New Zealand.
