Common name: Skyblue Clustervine, Pentantha
I always loved these blue flowers that grew along the grill in the balcony. Skyblue Clustervine is a small freely blooming creeper . The stem of the creeper is slender and green and the leaves are arranged alternatively. The leaves are small, shiny and heart-shaped ( look at them!) with pointed tips. The blue flowers are produced in clusters at the ends for long stalks. The petals are fixed by five white stamens. The creeper looks so beautiful in full bloom.
Botanical name: Jacquemontia pentanthos Family: Convolvulaceae (Morning glory family)
