Yesterday's picture seemed to give everyone trouble. This plant is definitely not super popular, and rarely sold in nurseries. What is it?
White Twinevine, or Funastrum clausum
This is a Florida Native perennial vine that has a native distribution from Central Florida down to all the way to the Florida Keys. It is a very prolific grower and can bloom year around in the right conditions. If you like a prolific vining plant for a an arbor or fence line... this plant is perfect for you.
Besides being an easy to care for native vine, White Twinevine is in the same family as our native milkweeds. And YES... Monarchs, Queens, and Soldier Butterflies will host on it!
It does prefer soil that is usually moist and it is found naturally on the edges of wetlands. It is not as picky about sunlight.
