Butterfly pea vine growth today!! Google search shows the REAL name is clitoria ternatea. (If I am wrong let me know and I will correct it)
You can see the butterfly pea vine growth-five strong vines
Here is the plant 09/07 (bought it 06/07). See the wonderful green leaves? Mine only bloomed where the sun touched the plant. It was too big for its pot and needed lots of water. The vines are floppy and really need a frame-mine was a tomato cage.
Here is a bloom (06/07)-in 2008 I halved my plant and kept the smaller half. It took a while to bounce back and didn't really bloom for me last year. I'm looking forward to a big performance this year.
We went Lowe's shopping Sat. I put our three new fruit trees (two peaches, one pear) on the the front porch so I can enjoy their blooms:). They are currently budding:)
Pansies were on sale...
They also had cyclamen on sale!!! I decided to give my old (healthier) ones to mom for her window sill, and bought a fragrant spotted white,
a fragrant solid white (left)
and a red, dark pink, light pink cyclamen
Look at the cool drooping red buds
