Doing the happy dance I contacted the seller of the seeds told him the willow leaf var. never grew I ordered a few more from him plus that one he doubled the order. Came up quick you can tell already its going to have the willow leaf. The others are starting to think about climbing. He had another willow leaf solid green that was also a mutant see how that goes.

Dana. Love the willow leaf in pic #3, all the others look good too. :-)

Mulberry, FL

Thanks have more too come :)

Mulberry, FL

Well this is a little disappointing they have just started to climb and there flowering already. Blue picotee is first and the pink picotee is not far away.One that started off with 3 and the start of the willow leaf.

I think they're beautiful Dana. Pretty little Kikyo blooms. Can't wait to see the
pink when it opens.

Mulberry, FL

Thanks me too but wished the vine had grown more before it started this.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

When I grow the kikyos, they take forever to bloom. I think your vines will keep
growing and making blooms and new leaves all along the stems. :-)

Here's the pink one noticed buds on the one that hasn't bloomed yet

I love those leaves Dana. I had kinda forgotten what the willow leaf looks like.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Those are very interesting.

Mulberry, FL

You see how small the plant is already has 2 small buds grows slower than regular

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

The willow leaf's grow slow like the Kikyo's as I recall. But not surprised it is already setting buds. When my Kikyo did that, it was already a 4 and 1/2 month old vine so was plenty
old enough to bloom even though my plant was still very small.

Mulberry, FL

Ok this what i was waiting for
