Thunbergia Grandiflower: Flower of the Day, Sept 3, 2017


Pushy and messy, these thunbergia vines are nonetheless my favorites. They rival kudzu in their push to cover the world.  I had to stop and click a fast photo of these vines on a neighbor’s wall.

    And there is my answer for what those little blue flowers that are taking over my garden really are. Actually, three things are vying for what is now laughably my garden: the wild grapevine (which i think holds the winning hand … what a ruthless unstoppable vine it it!), wild honeysuckle which likes to wind up everything and choke it, and the thunbergia which at least has pretty flowers. It is hopeless and I give UP.

    lol – never having been a gardener, I always think, “Then why not let it?” when you garden folk talk about the take-overs. It would be a pretty invader – both flowers and leaves.

        Nope.. I never see them. They go into big bags and to the garbage dump. Most of the vine flowers don’t last in water anyway, though. Strange, but I have so many windows and glass doors in my house that I never cut flowers.. just enjoy them as they grow.. Every room has one or two walls that are entirely sliding glass doors.
