Thank you all.
I've been by this plant to see the flower at least 10 times today!!!
It is loaded with buds and the flowers are so big!
I'm a very happy lady.

Alexandramou:

Do you have tons of fruit?

22 Sep, 2012

 

Just one left on this plant. A couple fell off during the fantastic thunder lighting storm with heavy rain and
very high winds!

How long to the flowers last on this one Alex?

23 Sep, 2012

 

Wow.....I'm not 100% sure Stevie. Old age creaping up on me???@#%&*!
I think a few days???

23 Sep, 2012

 

a few days is very good value indeed : )

23 Sep, 2012

 

The flowers last a couple of days; however, very large vines have hundreds or thousands of flowers and fruit.

This one has done really well Delonix. Every morning there was a flower or two on the vine.....(the reasone I couldn't remember 100% if they last one day or a few).
It's been nice and comfy here this past week.....Ooooohh heat right back up yesterday....at least it really cools down at night. ;o)))

26 Sep, 2012

 

This vines really grows super, super fast.

It's was so nice today, only 82ºF (28ºC), and tonight...a little reprieve before the very hot, humid weather comes back for several days. Hurricane Miriam is to our south. It's going to bring us a very hot, humid air mass, with possibly showers by this weekend. We'll have to see.

New buds on this vine again......my best passion vine so far!!!

So, how is your weather like this weekend?
Hot and sunny here with no wind.

29 Sep, 2012

 

When the vines get large, they can bloom almost all year.

Like in my other comment: All of San Diego County will be under "Excessive Heat Warnings" from Saturday - Wednesday. Record heat is on the way for several days. Temps to possibly 112ºF (44.4ºC) inland. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!!! :>(

29 Sep, 2012

 

Stay out of the heat and keep cool.......maybe your friends swimming pool??? ;o)))))

29 Sep, 2012

 

Yes, I will be in the a/c.

And yes, tomorrow I will be in the swimming pool in the late evening.
