I love my vines. I have tried many types. These two are keepers.
Red Cypress Vine/Ipomoea pennata stays small and is easy to train to any trellis.
It resows itself. Its feathery leaves are lovely.
The red blooms are gorgeous in any light.
My other favorite is Love in a Puff/ Cardiospermum halicacabum.
Its flowers are tiny white with yellow centers.
I love the puffy seed pods which contain three seeds.
Each black seed has a white heart on it.
I have heard this vine can be a pest below Zone 6, but it behaves itself here in North Carolina.
These two get along well together on our lamp post.
