Cathedral Bells

The name of this flower caught my eye last year as I shopped for new seeds. My husband and I were married in a cathedral, so these remind me of our wedding day. On Gardener's Network, I read that they were difficult to start, but once it got going, there's no stopping this vine. Best of all, it's a fall bloomer so you can still have something of interest blooming in the garden during the colder months.

Isn't she a beauty? To me they look like the skirts of fairies! Yesterday, the flower was still lime green. Today it is a shade of lilac and soon it will be a vibrant purple.
