People have been asking about the malabar spinach that's growing on the head board out back. It is edible, although we grew it cause it's pretty. It was a little slow to start, but once the heat came on, it really took off. Beautiful deep green leaves, shiny red stems, and now little pink/white blooms. Put this one on your plant-one-of-these-next-year list.
And here's cypress vine, one of our favorites, with the little red trumpet blooms that the hummingbirds (and the bluebirds) love. Lots of other vining going on in the garden too--snail vine, morning glories, sweet autumn . . .
We found malabar spinach thanks to Peggy's recommendation. What's your favorite vine? Let us know, cause we'll want to put it on our plant-one-of-these-next-year list too!
