Really enjoyed your pix of "Hawaiian Sunset" stictocardia. Now it is time to grow some of the other species of Stictocardia. Their seeds become available in our fall months, and that is the time to germinate them and grow them. You might want to visit the Morning Glory thread and read what Beckygardener wrote about growing seeds last fall.
There are about 4 other species of stictocardia, with very similar flower color, but different shaped flowers. I think you are probably the one to have success with them all. Frank

I have one growing on a fence-- carry a machete and don't let small dogs or children near it! It grows QUICKLY!! I pull shoots off of it weekly so it won't strangle the other plants. It almost did in a fishtail palm-- has grown 40 feet very quickly! A great screen, -- we call it the bean-stalk vine!

Debijayne...wonderful to see you back from all that business. Pulease show us some pictures of that vine you are talking about. You probably have the most tropical yard environment, of all of us her at Dave's Garden, and our plants probably don't need the hacking to keep the size down. Most of us would like to see the leaves and the vines in a picture. Frank

I braved the killer mosquitoes and got a picture of the vine and some other vines as well, if anyone may be interested. We have hacked it back fairly much this summer as it is trying to eat a fishtail palm or two! The plant underneath is an Awabuki(sp) and grows like a weed as well.

My ponderosa is going great guns as well! My Italian friends preserve them-- I'll see if I can get the recipe for you. I have Persian Lime. honeybell. Meyer lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and Key Lime as well. The Persian Lime from the flea market is doing the best of all of them! I have come to the conclusion that they need to be drowned in the first few years. You can never have enough limes!

Chantell, thanks for the pic above. I guess what I am really hoping to see develope is information from people who are growing stictocardia species in the ground down there in Florida. I am sure there are a number of people here who have actual growing experience with growing them in the ground.. Whoever these people are, they are really the only ones with observational wisdom and can answer questions, and post pictures.

There is so much confusion out there about the species in this group!!! It is shocking how easily huge mistakes in naming makes it into writing somewhere, even seed companies like B and T, Logees, Monrovia nurseries. Once they sell mislabled seeds or plants, the damage and confusion is nearly complete. If a grower finds out that he has inadvertantly mislabled plants he sold, or seeds, years later, he can't correct it.

I guess the closest thing to a dream come true for me would be to stumble upon an officianado of Stictocardia, there in florida that has 5 or 6 species growing in the ground for many years. Maybe someone will pop up one of these days.

Soooo-- the sunset vine looks as though the back neighbor tried to kill it, the lemon tree after producing buckets of lemons appears to have been hit by lightning and the cheapo Persian lime clearly is on steroidal drugs! I preserved the lemons and wow-- how easy and how good! The sunset vine is beginning to come back and hopefully the picture will do justice to the blue sky vine. The variegated lemons are going to take the place of the other lemon as they have grown so large that I am having trouble using them beside the garage and still getting the car in!!! My Tangerine tree has fruit the size of grapefruit and the grapefruit tree needs this cold weather so I can pick some to see how they are! Everglades tomatoes look great-- intersting to see if we get some this week if we have some sun.

Miracle grow-- when I remember! Our soil is sand that water just runs off, so anything at the bottom of the hill is in great shape. The citrus has huge dug-out areas around them.. except for the Persian lime that gets hit by our irrigation and the neighbor's as well. I have always been a firm believer in Miracle Grow since I left my farm . Then I was a firm believer in horse manure and chicken litter( loved to have that trucked in and then leave my soon to be ex-husband to put up with the smell!) I had day lilies at the farm that came up to my shoulders!
I also threaten the citrus. When a plant has a enough time to produce and it hasn't, I have a quiet chat with it and tell it that if it doesn't have some fruit soon, I will make cuticle sticks out of it. Works every time.
