I Have a (Garden) Dream

By rositoes
November 19, 2015

For years I have wanted to cover a trellis with morning to midnight blooms. I would plant an assortment of Morning Glories for early-in-the-day blooms in shades of red, blue, and violet. As they close, The flowers of the Alamo Vine would open at noon, showing their pink centers within the white bloom. In the early evening, the saucer-like MoonVine flowers would slowly begin to unfurl in all of their fragrant glory, some white and maybe some of the pinks. I might even add some Cypress Vines for their feathery foliage and little bursts of color!

I found some Alamo vine seeds from a seller on eBay. They are from last year, but should be ok. 24 seeds for $5.99, including shipping.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I wish I'd known! I have Alamo Vine...just didn't collect seed this year. If you still need it next year, mine make plenty seed.They grow up the fence into the trees, butterflies and hummingbirds like the blooms. Easy to grow!
