Corkscrew Flower

photos of Corkscrew Flower from Illinois

A fine photo of a flower uploaded yonks ago by Lord Douchebag. Don't fret, your lordship. All the hundreds of photos we had on Blogger, before the dreaded 'no entry' signs began appearing, are all safe. I'll blog one a day, if I remember!

From Marty the gardener:

The photo is the corkscrew vine. A tropical that I overwintered in my basement. It took 2 years to bloom. Something that the plant catalog failed to mention.
