You're right Daniel, my Leuco's are pretty, the HCW and the tarnok are getting lots of pretty new growth. My S. X Judith Hindle, S. Rubra, and S.X "Dana's Delight" are starting to show the effects of fall. Especially the Rubra, it's traps look like garbage. My S. X "Love Bug" has a new growth bud but nothing spectacular.

My D. Spatulata's came back with vengeance and look great, but my VFT's show the beginning of dormancy.

WISTERIA!! :mrgreen:
Ahh, Wisteria. I'm going to tell a little story.
When I lived in north Florida, this invasive vine was EVERYWHERE. Covering groves of trees and blanketing telephone poles, it was a sight to behold.
The flowers are purple-blue, and beautifully scented.. When this stuff blooms in late summer and mid spring, you'd think the clouds turned purple!
Unfortunately I don't any pictures, so here's one from offline that's the same color/species.

So pretty, I'm going to put them behind my Sarr's to attract more bugs for them to eat...evil, but seems legit!

it depends on the species of wisteria, some are non invasive (we had one it Michigan that only grew up a pole and we never had to prune it). the one in our yard here in VA looks like a small tree, it actually prevented a tree from falling on our house after hurricane Irene. i'll try to post a pic of it. :)

I know, but this was the Chinese Wisteria. I tried growing one from seed, but it didn't like me. :(
