I’m finding blooming plants that I had completely forgotten about. The only problem is – everything is kind of overgrown so I’m going to have to start clearing things out. I was poked, stabbed and scratched venturing in to try to get these pictures.
Originally planted along my fence - where it died – it’s now invading my wooded area about 100ft from it’s original spot. This might be a problem – since it’s twining up my shrubs. It smells pretty and the butterflies are enjoying it so I’ll let it stay a little longer until other plants start blooming.
Black-Eyed Susan Vine
Another plant originally meant for the fence that is now invading the back. This one dies back every winter though and is more easily managed so it gets to stay.
BTW – this vine is super easy to grow from seed and looks fantastic in containers!
So pretty and reliable – with absolutely zero care!
I totally forgot about this shrub. I planted it for the birds but it got overwhelmed by weeds and trees. I spotted the berries and cleared a path so now it has some room to groove.
