Jeeper creepers


I wonder if you can help me. These pictures are taken of a creeper we have growing on our fence. I am told they are “Zimbabwe Flowers”. The creeper flowers once a year at this time. (February / March / April ) Is this correct and if so, what were they called before Independence………..Rhodesia Flowers maybe??

Many thanks,

Peter Eldridge
