It's July in south Louisiana and I have flowers opening on my 1-year-old vine I started from seeds I got in a big swap in Jan. 2017. The plants stayed small and didn't flower last summer. This spring I put the plant that made it through unseasonable 21* temps here in zone 9 in a hanging basket. It got spider mites, so I cut it back to the soil and sprayed the area. It sent out pretty new leaves in June and got 12" long. Was I ever surprised to find a flower this morning and 3 other buds! The leaves are very ornate and the flower is small and quite mysterious looking.
