    Thunbergia battiscombei

    Remember the winter, a year ago when our temps went down to 17 degrees F?

    It was the first year that I had not covered my Thunbergia battiescombei, and I worrried that I had lost all. They were cuttings given to me years ago by a Master Gardener friend. She told me that they would multiply, and oh my, they have!

    I'll try to get another closeup of a flower later, and I do wish to take some cuttings. I'm not good at rooting in water, but since that is how I received these, I am willing to try.

    Please don't mind the weeds... It's hard to get amongst them to pull without worrying about stepping on one and crushing it.

    I'll also try to dig up some and transplant them in late winter.

    At least, I do not have to worry about covering them, huh?

    Fun!

    The weeds are protecting water evaporation and the whole scene looks great

    You should see this patch now! I love it!

    Tonight, it is going to be 31 degrees F., and I don't see any more frost in the near future. So rather than taking cuttings, I covered with 2 comforters (for now).

    Next spring, I hope to start another patch of them.
