In June, my neighbor that lives in the house behind me brought over a small little plant and said "this is for you..don't have a clue what it is, just some kind of a vine with little pink flowers." Well, not being one to pass up any kind of flower I gladly accepted it and planted it right away in a small pot. I thought if it was truly a vine, it might be happy climbing up the post of our new pergola. And it does seem pretty content to climb, and climb, and wind...but no blooms!
Isn't it pretty though. Lots of feathery foliage. I have it climbing with some morning glories that I planted in a pot after we returned from Colorado. They make very good companions!
The morning glories are not blooming yet of course--it's too soon, but hopefully I'll have some blooms in fall.
All the gardening around this new pergola/patio area is trial and error. I knew that going in...some things will live, some will not. But isn't that part of the fun of gardening? I hate, hate, HATE to lose plants, but oh the joy I have when something really works! I knew I would get sun, but I didn't know exactly when and for how long. I had to guess on most of the things I planted, and I am finding out some things, like the hostas, just will not work!
This cute little feathery delight is certainly one thing that is really working. Being in a pot, I do have to keep it watered quite a bit. I don't see any signs of little pink flowers, but maybe I need to feed it. Blooms would be nice, but with pretty foliage like this, I'm not overly concerned about flowers.
I know I am going to feel really dumb when I find out..but can somebody please tell me what I am enjoying so much!
What is this??
