Contained beauty…

This vine was planted in a large pot inside the courtyard of the Bonnet House in Ft. Lauderdale. The Coral Vine (Antigonon leptopus), aka Queen’s Wreath looks beautiful but is considered highly invasive in subtropical regions of the U.S. A decision to maintain it in a pot is wise as long as the seedheads will also be managed.

Dainty red flowers of the Coral Vine produces seeds eaten by many wild animals. Other nicknames bring a variety of images to mind: Chain of Love, Hearts on a Chain, Mountain Rose and Queen’s Jewels. I feel like plant naming can be as much fun as finding images in cloud shapes. Copyright 2023 Pamela Breitberg
