You just wait.....

Coral Vine



I know it doesn't look like much right now but you just wait. When I started working for the nursery last year we got in two flats of this vine. I had never seen it before and trust me, it didn't look like much. Then one day we had a customer come in who said her grandmother loved it and she bought several. Well we ended up planting some out by our white picket fence at work. Can I just tell you how beautiful it was when it finally bloomed!!! It has the most beautiful pinky, rose blooms. Everyone that drove by the nursery wanted to know what it was.


So, when we got it in this year, I bought me one. So far, it hasn't done much but later on this summer it should be gorgeous. At least, I hope so!!

Susie, thanks for the comments on my blog. I don't think I know Coral Vine, but am anxious to see it especially since it is a pinky color. You will learn pinks and purples are my favorites. I read several of your posts and..a degree in horticulture. Wow. Even won a contest. I am impressed. Now I know who to come to when I need a plant identified.

I've never heard of Coral Vine, but I can't wait to see these blooms you raved about. Is it a perennial and how tall does it get?

I can't wait to see your Coral Vine, I have no clue what it is.
