I love those vines, they look like cartoon flowers to me nodding
Gardening is learning, learning, learning. That's the fun of them.
You're always learning !

Very nice!
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...

I plant some each year if I can find them in the garden centers. This year I have both the yellow and some with red shades the humming birds love the red shades. The red are in large pots are near a window with obelisk in them to support the vines. The hummingbirds love these plants and we get to watch the hummers, win win all around.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

These are one of my favorites, and I grow them from seed. Swallowtail Seeds and Geoseed is where I normally buy them. I haven't figured out how to collect seed from them yet, but sometimes they self sow for me. They are such a tame little vine you can put them anywhere and they are just lovely. Thanks for reminding me to buy some seeds for next spring!

Here's an amusing article on collecting the seeds, and it has nice clear photos, too:
