Alamo Vine

Alamo Vine Merremia Dissecta - Photo by Jessica Spengler|  Varieties Available  |  Merremia Dissecta  |

      On my morning walks around the neighborhood, I stumbled across a vine growing on a fence near Interstate 10. Each morning I either missed the blooms or they didn’t have any that day, but I did manage to take a few photos of the leaves, seed pods, and buds. This allowed me to identify the plant as the Alamo Vine. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of the actual flowers, so I had to utilize the attached great photo by Jessica Spengler from Wikipedia’s Common area. This year I will be growing this vine out to get more of my own photos.
