Dalechampia dioscoreifolia - Purple Wings Vine Flower


Dalechampia dioscoreifolia - Purple Wings Vine Flower (Dalechampia dioscoreifolia - Purple Wings Vine)

Purple Wings Vine has become very popular in the last couple of years in California. This vine was a gift from a friend. This Costa Rican vine, supposedly once established, can bloom every day of the year here in San Diego, CA. Photo taken July 3, 2011.

You've got one! Mine hasn't done so well in the last year. It was chomped on, stomped on and ripped to shreds in that time ... recovering now but I haven't seen any flowers in ages.

Bernieh:

Yes, I have one. :>)

Sorry to hear about all the damage to your vine! :>(

I'll have to be very careful with this vine...I've read it can be a very vigorous grower, taking over a large area (in S.California gardens) in a short period of time.

I have a feeling this vine may develop a common name like: purple butterfly.

I can definately see why. Not sure if there is a Butterfly that colour. :o)

Thats great I dont think I could think of any that do that here.

I guess when you get into subtropical and tropical climates with the year-around growing season, it's more common to have trees, plants which bloom all year.
