I just love this vine. Once I saw one that was so huge it covered a long and winding wooden structure top to bottom, end to end. It was amazing. The stems were thicker than ropes. And it was just covered in flowers in varying shades of purple. Of course I had to grow it but didn't have the space for it and it does get aggressive and grows so fast. I had to get rid of it when I could no longer

Actually Kell, I didn't have much to say about this pic because some of the other pics showed the scale better. So many times tiny flowers are blown so big that I thought this was another one of them... ( sometimes a let down ) ...actually after parusing through the photos it seems to be as large as a Sky Vine flower! That makes it special! This is one of those occasions for me,... that some

Actually this flower is quite big. 3 1/2 to 4 inches across. And they hang so decoratively! Very noticeable in great abundance on the vine. It comes in white too, David. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/308173/s I begged for that seed pod I show there and grew out the seeds. Not to plant though. LOL. My house would be smothered. I always enjoy these "white" photos for I went
