People Either Love or Hate This Plant
Some sweetheart working for Kin Town called it Queen's Necklace, her favorite flower.
She spotted the plant on my feature photo, yesterday.
So, I pulled-up my pending flower files to show you some now, that we have an ID.
Scientists would call it Antigonon leptopus.
It is also known as Coral Vine or Bride's Tears.
University of Florida Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants isn't too wild about them.
The Wikipedia folks say aboriginal Baja Californians, used the seeds like popcorn.
Queen's Crown and Queens Wreath are some other names the vine is called.
And, in Cajun country they call it Rose of Montana Vine.
That's just a few of the names, I saw at Dave's Garden.
They say, birds, bees and butterflies love these flowers, too.
From what I've seen, the vines can grow fairly long and, high. So, it got me thinking.
