Purple Bean Hyacinth

Two years ago, we had a beautiful display from the Purple Bean Hyacinth but last year was a flop. This year we tried a new location behind the pond and the Hyacinth loved the spot. We used bamboo to provide support for the vines and it grew to the top, over 6 feet and then it reached out to the Redbud tree. You can't see it in the picture but the vine has grown to the top of the tree and is reaching out for more. The second picture show the Elephant Ears and Black Magic at the large pond reaching their maximum size for the season. Nights are getting cooler so it won't be long before some of these plants decide it's time for a winter nap.
