During a recent walk in a park here in Florida, Anne pointed out these beautiful morning glory flowers growing on intertwining vines that climbed on the shrubs of the woodlands. The blossoms were white with a splash of magenta in the center. Its leaves were intricately cut – finger like. Seed capsules hung off the vines.
I did not find much information about this wild native plant except for its historical medicinal use to cure giddiness, snake bites and intoxication. Nevertheless, it was a welcome sight on this fall day in the sunshine state and we enjoyed its subtle beauty in a still green landscape.
