Sold widely as an excellent nectaring plant... I find that it demands a lot of water or it will promptly wither; and sadly, doesn't really seem so attractive to local butterflies. Perhaps others have had more luck.

Vine growing like crazy. We've tried to kill it but it always comes back! Shown growing up the side of one of my sunflower stalks.

End of the trail for this brave little hairstreak? Seemed to be making some progress in getting loose.

On an adjacent branch, a flower spider. I didn't think these used webs; and I think that it was only being opportunistic as the butterfly blundered into the remnants of an old web.

I should have stayed to watch, but could not.
