Hummingbird Magnet

Eccremocarpus scaber growing on trunk on dead Trachycarpus
     Last year I wrote about Eccremocarpus scaber here, and in that post I had a picture of this vine just starting to grow up a dead Trachycarpus trunk in my garden.  If you compare the picture from that entry with the one here, you will see how much growth this vine has made since last year.  Of course, it was helped by our very mild winter, since the Eccremocarpus never did die all the way back like it sometimes does.  Anyway, this vine has made a great cover up of the dead trunk and the hummingbirds thank it for that!

  1. How lovely! The flowers remind me of Phygelius blossoms.
