In the garden this morning.....

Does anyone have a good example (pic) of how they are growing a Hawaiian Woodrose vine? This thing is huge and I need to find a better place for it next year. Love the big leaves and fuzzy white stems. The flowers are a bonus.

I always forget the name of this vine. It's on a trellis with a black eyed Susan vine, but it's one I need to find a more prominent place for. It took a decent amount of sun where it is now.....I was surprised.

Sorry, hit Submit too soon. Cosmosoma Myrodora, the scarlet-bodied wasp moth. Needs climbing hemp and dog fennel. A really beautiful creature.

Amazing pictures T, you really have quite the green thumb ;-)

WB - That flower doesn't look like dog fennel to me, is it Spanish needles (Bidens alba)? Another amazing picture....

Yes, they nectar from many plants, but climbing hemp is the host vine and they use dog fennel in an extremely unusual way:
