Here's the Hyacinth Bean Vine flowers, will post the purple seeds pods next.  They're beautiful and grow about 8ft.  Leaves are dark purple at first and then turn green.

I love black eyed susan vines too and have grown them many times in the past.  They are super easy and super fun.  Since orange is my favorite color, I tend to prefer the old fashioned orange flowered ones, although I have to say, two years ago I grew some of the newer peachy/pink hybrid ones and they were quite nice.  Just make sure they have something narrow/thin they can coil around to climb as they're twiners.  I just used super tall bamboo poles a few times, plus tall iron obelisks too.  Anything about half an inch or less in diameter should work.  Great plants.  You're giving me a craving, Cindy and Barbara, LOL.  Take care and happy gardening!

Cindy, I have grown the Black-Eyed Susan Vine (Thumbergia.)  I love this vine.  I have to order some more seeds, though.  I usually save some, but had back surgery, so I didn't really get to save many seeds.  It comes in an orange, white, & blush color, I believe.  You will absolutely love this vine!  It is one of my favorites!

MORNING... I just saw a pic of a Kiwi Vine, it's truly a beautiful plant. Anyone tried it before or have pics ? Please share !... Happy Gardening.

Cindy, for the last few yrs., I have grown mine in a large planter & they seem to like it.

Cindy, I'm trying Cardinal Vines for the first time also. I planted them at the back of my flower bed. The vine could  run up my  neighbor's fence... It would add beauty to their yard also.

Still no life from the Trumpet Vines... Someone please tell me they hybernate and return in the spring. I would love for them to take over my wooded area in my backyard. Does anyone have pics of  Trumpet Vines on an Arbor or Trellis ?

Oh well... I'm looking for another rainstorm.  Planted my Morning Glory, Sweet Peas, and Cardinal Climbers today. I'll check on them in a couple of weeks. I just wish it would rain for a month. I must shop for new water hoses. Looking forward to some green in my yard other than weeds. Bought more seeds today. The warm weather caused a lot of bulbs to peep out early...  Happy Gardening !

Cindy, I don't know if you've ever grown the Cardinal Vine, but it is a gorgeous vine!  I grow this every yr., but you have to put it where you don't mind it taking over.  It literally grows about a ft. every day.  I live in Z8.  I love vines!
