Have you ever seen this flower? It looks very much like a morning glory, but it's not. Think of a morning glory that is not invasive and whose blooms last all day instead of closing up once the sun gets high. This picture comes courtesy of Floridata, where you can get lots more information on it. This vine is also called clock vine, but the real name is Thunbergia Grandiflora. It's very fast growing and will even grow in shade. My plant is in full sun and is growing like a weed right now. A frost will kill it to the ground, but it will come back the next spring if the ground doesn't freeze. Stay tuned for some photos of my plant later in the year. This is another plant that is not well known and should be more widely planted.
