Candy Corn Plant

Oh my gosh!  You will not believe what I came across today... A Candy Corn Plant!  {A tropical vine!}  Since I love Halloween, I knew I had to bring this darling little vine home to add it to one of my gardens!  Good thing I didn't see the word "tropical" until I was reading up on it tonight!  There is nothing "tropical" in MN!  I'm not worried... I'm up for a challenge!  I will have to keep you posted on this little darling!  If all goes well- it should be blooming thru the fall!  If I keep stopping at every greenhouse I drive by - I'm soon going to need a bumper sticker that says "I brake for flowers!"  Hope this inspires you to "go out of the box" and try adding a new & unique flower to your garden!

Isn't it the cutest? I bought one two weeks ago. It wasn't blooming much until I put it in an all day sunny spot....presto...lots of candy corn!

That is so fun and I think it would be fun to have an indoor garden with tropical plants, all year round.

Hey Kris... I have no planted it yet. I guess I better think about a sunnier spot! I can't wait to it to bloom more! Have you ever had one before? I am thinking about bringing it in - haven't read yet if it will be safe for the cats!

I never heard of it before either... I couldn't pass it up once I seen it!!
