we have always pulled this as a weed, but it's just so pretty. Do you know what it is???
SOLVED: purple vine
I don't think I've seen that before! It certainly is pretty. Invasive?
I thought it looked the same!!!!!!! I have several of these!! I can't believe it:) doing the happy dance here!!!! :):):)
These are a natural wildflower of GA.. Here is some info..The woods on the road to my house is full of them right now.. They are so pretty.
but they aren't invasive. We've had them forever, but never let them grow. With all the rain we've had, they've done great!
I'm headed to the woods on the road to Larkie's house. Jim
Save some seeds for me, too! Are they annual or perennial? Let me know what I can trade you for some of them.
Judith, I'm going out to take another picture right now, it's putting on a show that makes me proud:) I'll save the seeds, no problem, and it's a perennial here.
tiG, do you have this tall lanky Georgia boy a cutting. Are we meeting some time next week to trade?? I have your sweet shrub ready and waiting. Jim
Jim, I have you one in a pot. I'm going to see if I can get a bigger one today. Look in the photo forum, it's so lovely. I'm a very proud mama:)
and yes, we need to meet again, I'll write you, I am really looking forward to that sweet shrub. :)
Tig, I love your sweet pea vine, I'll trade you some Hyacinth Vine for some.
I'll save you some seeds, I'm not really sure how this will travel in this heat, it's a very thin vine. will that be okay??
MsMunchken, I have the BLUE one (the Clitoria ternata) and it doesn't vine for me, exactly, and it's a distinctly different color from the pic that tiG has posted (the Vaccinium corymbosum). I've seen THAT one growing wild when I was in Gulf Shores a couple of years ago (sans seedpods, alas!)and it does vine. I hope to have lots of seeds of the C. ternata this fall, if anyone wants some. There's also a white version of this, and a double version, but I don't have them. If anybody finds some, let me know.
judith, you're right, they are different. And I'll trade you seeds from mine for seeds from yours:)
Would love to have a few seeds as well if possible.
Thanks for yourtime and have a good day.
sure CoCo, I'll make a list so I don't forget anyone, it's a no problem plant, and I just love the show it's putting on.
I don't know yet what kind of seed crop I'll have, but I'll post them in the fall, for anyone who wants them.
