{Ipomoea Quamoclit or Cypress Vine}

On the wooden rail, along the steps to our gazebo we have a lovely new vine climbing up!
It is the Ipomoea Quamoclit or Cypress Vine.
A very tiny flower but oh so pretty!
Here it climbs up the wooden railing.
The Hoya Carnosa is also on the steps and both are gourmet food for the hummingbirds, that feast on the pollen and nectar.
These tiny flowers are not easy to capture...
Photos are taken on August 26.
Tiny, slender buds open up...
The above photo was on September 10; taken by husband Pieter...
Seeds start forming for next year's showcase of feathery green with tiny red flowers.
Maybe you too do have this tiny vine?

    this is such a lovely and wonderful feathery green, and with those tiny red flowers, a wonderful eyecatcher!

      It is a very lovely combination of green with tiny red flowers but a real vigorous grower!
      We got the seeds from a dear friend but they will be available on the market too.
      Hugs,

  7. So fragile but very pretty this cypress vine Mariette! How wonderful looks the green area surrounding your home! And it seems that you also have mild weather and pleasant temperatures, so I suppose you spend a lot of time outdoors.
    Wish you a nice end of week!

      Indeed our weather is very mild still and we love to be outdoors and enjoy all this beauty! We had some rain for a while but now it is lovely to be outside. We sure enjoyed this fragile but strong cypress vine with its tiny flowers. Bet that the hummingbirds loved each single one!
      Happy weekend to you as well.
      Hugs,

  14. Cypress Vine, sehr hübsch, liebe Mariette. Diese Pflanze kannte ich noch gar nicht. Und wenn, wird sie hier bestimmt unter einer anderen Bezeichnung verkauft. Und wenn die Blüten auch klein sind, sind sie doch allerliebst!

    Liebe Feiertagsgrüße

      Aber der botanischer Name ändert sich aber nicht; Ipomoea Quamoclit...
      Sehr lieb sind sie und so eifrig auch.

  15. Liebe Mariette,
    auch ich habe diese Blume noch nie gesehen - was für eine schöne Farbe -
    es gefällt mir, wie sie um das wunderschöne weiße Geländer rankt -

    ich wünsche dir genauso herrliches Wetter, wie wir es zur Zeit haben -

    ein wundervolles Wochenende -
    liebe Grüße- Ruth

    1. Liebe Ruth,
      Es ist eine sehr schöne, feine tropische Blume und wächst sehr schnell auf und blüht dann ohne Ende!
      Es gefällt uns auch sehr dort wo sie rankt.
      Ja, hier gibt es auch Sonne und Wärme!
      Schönes Wochenende und alles Liebe,
      Mariette

  16. Jetzt habe ich sie, liebe Mariette, auch eine Prunkwinde - dafür hat sie wirklich kleine Blüten. Aber zauberhaft! Das ist wirklich auch was für mich

    Alles Liebe nochmals

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Siehst du, der botanische Name leitet immer zur Information in jeder Sprache! Ja, das Wort Prunkwinde hört sich an ob es etwas grosses ist aber erst durch die Fotos kann man wirklich sehen wie fein und schön die sind.
      Ganz liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette

  17. Dearest Mariette,
    Those flowers reminds me of Christmas flowers. So cute.
    Will you show us pictures from Gran Canyon?
    I saved $ 200 from the vacation in SF, so next year I have to travel to the USA again. Clever of me :) !
    What do you suggest, New Orleans, Washington, or the Gran Canyon ?. Or anywhere else?
    I wish you a happy weekend!
    Hugs to you
    Astrid

    1. Dearest Astrid,
      The green and red indeed would work perfect for December decoration!
      Ah, yes I will show you pictures of the Grand Canyon! I had all these posts lined up (posted ahead of time) because when I do it the other way around, the fall is too far ahead and certain posts don't make sense anymore. So just be patient!
      Both of us were so impressed with the Grand Canyon and also with Sedona that we would love to go back. It was beyond expectation and if you love nature; this is IT!
      New Orleans is interesting but not for long... and so is Washington DC, interesting for historical monuments and such but a lot more hectic and complicated to park a car etc.
      Hope this helped you and wishing you a happy weekend as well.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    I love the way this ipomoea climbs around the stairs.
