Blooming Friday/Sky blue Cluster Vine
Welcome to Blooming Friday! My erratic connection kept me out of
blogdom but now I hope I'll be able to make up for all that lost
I took this picture of a tiny dragonfly some time back in a nursery.
The next best reason for visiting nurseries I must say, is to see so
many lovelies flitting and flying about.
The Cluster Vine bloometh....after a gap of several months. There's a
reason here. I had to prune it because the growth was so vigorous and
that I did just when it showed signs of fatigue blooming like nobody's
business throughout the cooler months till March/April. Wish I could say
the same for other vines too but the others happen to be moody!!
The Skyblue Cluster Vine/Jacquemontia pentantha is a fast-growing climber.
A native of tropical America, it's from the Morning Glory family. It's
ideal for trellises. The flowers bloom in clusters at the end of long stalks.
The flowers are attractive to pollinators. The plant can be easily propagated
by cuttings and by seeds.
I couldn't resist posting these pictures from February and March this year.
There's always a fly or a butterfly on the many blue blooms. I hope you
enjoy going through these photos. To see what's blooming around the world,
the place to stop by is-- Katarina's.
Thank you for stopping by... Have a great weekend everyone!!
