So are those blue things in the center of the flower seed pods? Does it start out with that when it opens, or does that show up and darken as the bloom is getting older? Kewl plant!

I really don't know much about this plant. A friend of mine was asking what it was. Sorry

Yes, those are the fruit/berries/seed of the Harlequin Glory Bower:

I've never grown this plant because I've been told it's invasive. I've heard it's a Butterfly magnet and that the blooms are very fragrant. The leaves are supposed to smell like peanut butter when crushed.
