Not a Clematis or a Butterfly Bush: Flower of the Day, Feb 6, 2018

You did it, Cee!  It is a petrea volubilit, commonly known as a queen’s wreath or sandpiper vine! I am so happy to finally know the name of this bush. Now I need to find a way to remember its name. I owe you one.

I still can’t figure out what flower this is that grows beside the stairs up to Martin’s Restaurant in La Manzanilla, Mexico.  They are long sprays about a foot long.  The single flowers turn pale brown and papery and can be used dried. I’d love to know what they are.  

 

 

For Cee’s flower prompt.
