I bought a vine, it was labeled Lotus. I think that's a mistake, it must have gotten the wrong tag. I looked up Lotus Vine, and that's not what it is. I found another one in the front yard. An old BIG one. I'd thought it was a clover plant, or a shamrock type thing and I left it when I mowed. It got big, as bushy as a peony shrub and now it's starting to fall. It's clearly a vine and is related to that thing I bought. Which has jewel tone dark red flowers. It's leaves are like a Sweet Pea, but, three leaves, instead of two. The flower is smaller than a Sweet Pea, but, similarly shaped, with intense color. I'm letting it vine up that old dress form. It's raining hard today, splashing everything. Whatever they are, I like them. I'm going to have to trellis that old one now, those fallen vines were a tough bitch to clean up last year. They must be hardy.
