  • To lighten the load from winter preperation can you tell me what this is?

    I bought this in April, from one of the more notorious websites and after waiting 6 weeks a tiny wisp of a plant arrived and after lots of nurturing and care, today it flowered!

    Latin name only
    No searches

    and the winner gets 1 Nero 600m cutting and 1 Maltese Falcon cutting.

      I hope for your sake it's not Phaseolus caracalla. They look very similar. The Vigna has a wonderful fragrance and is well behaved. The Phaseolus is invasive with no fragrance.

          A Latin name has 2 words, genus and species. Cochliasanthus caracalla is a synonym for Vigna caracalla (and vice versa). In this case you might be able to get away with it because there's only 1 species in the genus.

                Well this did not turn out to the conundrum I hoped it to be. Its a sign of the caliber of knowledge that is to be found at Ourfigs!

                Harborsealyou were incredible quick out of the gate and so was Taverna78.

                So I am going to split the prize. Harborseal which one of the 2 cutting world you like? and I will send the other one to Taverna78.

                Thank you for participation. PM me with your mailing address.

                      Actually, I believe this was one of the slower wins. These things have ended in less than 2 mins. I think Fabio won at least 1 that way.

                        I no win trivia or questionnaire. I did win falcon when was posted he had extra to give away but I see it right as I signed on to web and was very early in morning. I get up very early so I was just lucky to see it within the first minute it was post. But please for you take both cutting. Like I say above you first and correct answer.
