Hi Tanay,
  Interesting question considering that it climbs and flowers at the top of tall trees !!!
                           Regards,
                             Neil.

... plus, my thinking is, that these flowers of T. tricuspidata could be having very short-timed glory.
Never had the luck to see its best.
