For the cypress vine.... the picture in the left... I'm assuming that it is several different colors growing together or does it have different colors on one plant?? Love the mingling of the colors!!
I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Kim,

Those would be separate plants mingling together.

I would guess that the ones in this image were cut back a couple of times during their early growth stages. When I tried to reproduce it here (without trimming back), my blooms were willy-nilly across the top of the fence and sporadic in color, not nice and tidy with all colors showing equally. Whoever grew those in the picture surely did a great job!
