Yellow Butterfly Vine

The tiny orchid-like flowers on this plant are pretty. The foliage is green and glossy.

But it's the seed pods that I love the best.

Bright chartreuse butterfly wings that fade to shades of brown as they dry.

  1. What a neat plant! I've never seen it before, and the seed pods are really striking.

  2. I've been thinking of you after seeing all the rain in Houston. Hope you are dry, or at least, not flooded! The butterfly vine is very pretty and interesting.
