|Description||California Friendly Gardening/Outstanding Ornamental. Photo was taken in my Menlo Park garden on March 6, 2016 using an iPhone 6s. I planted the Happy Wanderer in honor of my father and it was one of the first plants I planted since moving from the east coast (couldn't grow this in the frigid winters of Pennsylvania). I did grow up in Melbourne, Australia (Mediterranean climate), however, and my father had a vine just like it - he absolutely loved the vibrant purple flowers! I took a photo of him and my mother in front of the flowering vine, extremely happy together on his 60th birthday - all of my siblings have a framed copy. It was the last happy photo taken before he died of cancer a couple years later. My parents both LOVED the garden and being outdoors and I didn't stand a chance to not love it too - after all what is not to LOVE!|
