Nice surprise this morning when I looked under the potting bench. I discovered my Cup of Gold Vine had bloomed! The funny thing is that the flower is as big as the whole plant!

I've hand pollinated every flower and have never been successful getting seeds.

Does the species have to be a certain age or size to begin flowering, Anne?

These are from rooted cuttings I took last year from a mature plant so I was surprised when both my cuttings produced buds.

Absolutely stunning!!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
