  1. Ohhhhh, I think I know that lovely flower. It looks a lot like “Garlic Vine” or Bejuco de Ajo — It would climb to the tops of the dry-rainforest trees and bloom way up high. I transplanted a cutting when I lived in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, and it thrived on a bamboo trellis. Eleven months of ‘green’ but when it bloomed – oh my, stunning!

    Great post for this week’s theme.

    • Thanks for commenting! The flower here is actually from the Thunbergia grandiflora vine, but it is very similar to the Garlic Vine. We actually have both in our garden and they are both lovely! The Thunbergia has grown way up to the top of the Bombay mango tree & the Garlic Vine is way up in the ackee tree. When they blossom, they are magnificent! One way to tell the difference is to crush a leaf; that’s when you know why the Garlic Vine has that name. 🙂
