Blue Trumpet Vine, Laurel Clock Vine (Thunbergia laurifolia)
A popular ornamental vine in tropical gardens, Blue Trumpet Vine is a fast-growing perennial plant and can become invasive. This plant flowers almost continuously throughout the year with flowers opening early in the morning and fading in the evening of the same day. Flowers are not scented although bees are frequent visitors. Rang jeud tea from Thailand comes from the leaves of Blue Trumpet Vine. It is said to detoxify the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.
"The immortality of Flowers must enrich our own, and we certainly should resent a Redemption that excluded them..." ~ Emily Dickinson

the sun comes and finds your face,
