This tender annual vine is just breath taking in bloom. The truly royal blue flowers cover the plant from mid-summer through frost in Houston. This vine can reach 6-10 ft, and does well on the side of an arbor, or climbing up a birdhouse pole. This plant has caught my eye all summer, but makes my plant of the day today because I saw it's host butterfly, the Long Tailed Skipper, for the first time in the garden today. Ahh, flowers make me happy, and butterflies make me smile! Too bad I didn't have my camera with me! This wonderful vine will freeze back in the winter, but will return from re-seeding in the spring. It's a must have!
This plant/butterfly made my day! How 'bout yours?
