The Cup and Saucer Vine

The cup and saucer vine - Cobaea scandens - which is native to tropical America is still in full flower.

As Christmas nears and the garden slows down for the colder winter months there are still a few unexpected things in flower.

The cup and saucer vine Cobaea scandens which is native to tropical America is still in full flower. It is usually grown as an annual but in a very mild winter may survive and flower well into December. Ours tend to self-seed and if they do overwinter are so vigorous that they often require a trim after the last frost.
