Pink Tievine

Pink Tievine Ipomoea Cordatotriloba|  Varieties Available  |  Ipomoea Cordatotriloba  |

      Tievine is a very hardy vine. It is considered invasive to Australia and to many individual growers. When I moved to my current home in Florida, I found it growing on a neighbor’s fence and immediately saved up the seeds once the neighbor said they were going to get rid of it with some “oil”. It worked for a couple of years but eventually came back. It covers like a carpet and will takeover your garden if you are not careful. The blooms are magnificent, though small around 2 inches. I noticed some white blooms in there so there could be an odd seed from the white variety of tievine mixed in, though I tried to deadhead all the white ones I saw in the pink section.
