I don't have a bloom photo yet ... but probably tomorrow morning. All volunteers! LOL! This container has volunteer I. purpurea higes. Looks like the Pink Flaked higes. :-) I sprinkled poppy seeds in the container, too, so should look interesting when everything is blooming! ;-)

Dee - Thanks! That's a volunteer from my Fall vines. LOL! I have I. purpurea sprouts in all the containers from the Fall 2010 grow-outs. I was growing mostly I. purpureas because of rust fungus which is really bad here in Florida because of the humidity. The I. purpureas aren't usually bothered by the rust, but they sure produced a number of seeds that dropped into the containers! ;-)

Drop dead gorgeous higes Becky. I hope I can get something close to the beauty in your flowers, would make me so happy.
Beautiful weather here for the last 2 weeks. Went from snow and highs of 26 to balmy 65 to 75 degrees. The groundhog must have got it right this time. :-)

Thank you to Debra, Helena, and Jackie! I really like the hige cultivars, too! I must confess that I am not a big fan of I. purpurea vines, but those are truly worth growing!

Well, I was out gardening. Actually cleaning up and removing all the dead branches and plants. Everything is starting to put on new leaves. I have Coral Honeysuckle along my east fence. So had to trim that bad boy way back. It's monsterous right now! But the hummingbirds love it! :-)

Just came inside after planting seeds in several locations by my fences, Becky. A mix of seeds, some from you, some Rebecca from a couple of years ago, and some from stores. Can't wait to see what comes up. I should have some beautiful colors. You certainly got an early start with your blooms.

Teresa - I hope to get lots of poppy blooms this season. I always try to save the teeny seeds. I would be more than glad to share some with you when I do. I just toss the seeds on the soil and forget about them until they start sprouting. This year I hope to try some California poppies to see how they grow here as well. I never thought poppies would grow in Florida. Nice surprise that they do! :-)

Maybe for you. California Poppies are one of my favorite flowers, and I have tried them repeatedly with no success. Maybe one or two flowers at most. Even when I grew the red poppies a few winters ago, I got maybe a half dozen blooms before they died.

Teresa - Mine bloom and then die too. But last year I was pleasantly surprised that some of the plants had numerous buds and bloomed for quite some time. I always thought one bloom per plant! LOL!

I've never grown the CA poppies before, so it will be interesting to see if they grow and bloom here. I have heard they will. I sure hope so!!!!

Well, that may be a small problem. I had the vines growing together in the Fall and didn't have the vines marked, so when collecting seeds, I had no idea which seeds are which. I have the pale blue, pale pink, and the pink flaked hige vine seeds collected together in a mix. Perhaps you wish to wait until seeds form on my current vines or take a chance on a mix of seeds? I haven't marked the vines yet for seed IDing. And crosses are possible since they are all growing together. It's up to you how you wish to do a trade. Dmail me. :-)

Wow! Gardenpom, I wish this year was not so cold here, nothing is growing yet! that is one pretty MG, your off to a really good start, I hope you have a fantastic year and don't forget to share them LOL! I mean photos that is.

Becky, I have the same problem Iv'e no idea at all what most of my seed will produce as they are open pollinated,
who cares they are all beautiful! Just love these and the surprises they may bring! I really don't like to manipulate nature or even try to understand it, I just love what it does for free.

Happy new growing season to everybody no-matter what your take.

Teresa - That does look very similar to Rebecca ... possibly a cross that made that beautiful bloom! Glad to see a volunteer has graced your yard and is produced some delightful flowers! I, too, have I. purpurea volunteers that are making me smile currently. They are such amazing vines! Thanks for sharing your photo and I look forward to many more pics from you this year! :-)

Jon - I am guilty of messing with Mother Nature! LOL LOL LOL But you are right! Mother Nature does a fine job without any help! :-) And the surprises (whether mine or Mother Nature's) are what keeps me growing these wonderful vines! :-)

I was able to get this photo of all three different hige cultivars that are growing together in a container. All volunteers from last Fall. You can see the Pink Flaked Hige, a blue and pink hige, and the white with pink hige in the background. :-) I am becoming quite smitten with those I. purpurea higes!

Debra - Thanks!

Nick - Your Maisugata babies look great! You might want to consider separating them into their own individual pots at this time before the roots get much bigger. A single plant will give you a good sized vine and lots of blooms. Just a suggestion ...

Using a spoon to remove them one by one with as little as possible root disturbance is the way I usually separate mine. :-)

Debra Thank you, too!

Becky Nice hige blooms! I'll be transplanting those babies soon. I couldn't remember how old the seeds were, so I sowed heavily just in case... I see you have chicken wire around one of your pots. Is that for pest damage prevention? If so, what kind of critters do you have? I think we have more squirrels than humans living in our neighborhood!

The chicken wire is for both prevention of squirrels digging holes to bury the seeds and for my vines to climb. :-)
