Welcome to Today’s Flowers. These blues won’t get you down:) After a lull in the blooming due to being transplanted from the container to the ground, my sky-blue cluster vine/Jacquemontia pentantha is at it again. It’s growing against the wall on a bamboo trellis. It’s a fast-growing plant and it can easily grow to 40-50′ in length. The vine can produce hundreds of flowers. Looking at it, the first hundred are surely coming.
A native of tropical America, the plant from the Morning Glory family blooms most parts of the year and can tolerate full sun. The trumpet-shaped flowers with a white throat attract many pollinators and I’m going to be very busy in the coming weeks to see what kind of wildlife the plant attracts. The plant can be easily propagated from cuttings and seeds. But unlike other morning glory relatives, this vine can be trimmed and be kept under control.
