WW- Cobaea

This Cobaea (Cup and Sauver Vine) was photographed on 12 December still going strong. The vine had and still has buds coming on. The plant is a perennial but not in England - it is a native of Mexico (or thereabouts). We are surprised to see it still going strong so close to Christmas. This week's entry for the Tuesday and Wednesday editions of Wordless Wednesday.

Thanls Calum. Glad you like it!

If it's a vine then you don't have to worry on buying a garland :)

All you need is add a few Christmas ornaments and voila! Instant Christmas decor in your garden ;)

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

I love the beautiful deep purple colour! Hope it survives past Christmas. :)

I also love the color, but the flower looks unusual to me. Pardon me. I hope it survives the harsh English winter though.

It's really interesting looking and such a deep purple. It's so alive it almost appears primeval.

That is a really interesting flower - I am not familiar with Cobaea.

It does seem like plants are staying green and/or in bloom a bit longer. It felt like that when I was back in New York in November, much greener than I recall it a couple of decades ago.
