I just propagated a Petrea volubilis, our Wisteria for the tropics, if I may. The more I work
with vines, more convinced I am of their advantages for privacy,aesthetics, quiet, fruit, and else.
It is a pleasure to see/read your articles. Until next.
Jacques: what do you think of the various Australian pea vines (Hardenbergia, Kennedia, Dipogon, etc.)? Do you grow them? Or do you avoid them because of the possibility of escape? What about their east Asian sisters the Millettia?
I have been astonished by the growth of Kennedia nigricans in a zone 9 desert climate: 30ft up a tree and covered with weird black blooms in just one season!
Thanks for all the glimpses into your "close to Eden" home!
I do not grow those species though they do have wonderful flowers but it is probably too wet where I live for those dry areas species and being of the Leguminosae family there is also an escape possibility as you say. I do not know the Millettia...
30 feet in one season? Do you feed it with radioactive manure?;))
Glad you enjoy those glimpses!
