Tender perennial flowering vine with unique pretty flowers on flower stalks. Looks so pretty with different colour of flowers through time!  It will be so stunning can flower like this image, so beautiful!  https://www.flickr.com/photos/nobuflickr/3021609024/in/gallery-28670112@N08-72157624360844987/

Well, it is tender perennial to Canada so I will grow the plants in pot indoors in the end of summer.   Hopefully it will bloom next summer to fall then.  It is easy to grow in full sun location.  Easy to propagate from seeds or cuttings. Mature size:8′-10′(H) X9″-1′(W). Seed is poisonous if ingested.  Flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds.  Flowers are good for cut flower.

金魚花(Ipomoea lobata旋花科番薯屬的多年生爬藤,喜溫暖氣候.  它的通稱有很多,如:魚花蔦蘿/可倫花/串金魚/小葉金魚花/鯨魚花/紐扣鯨魚花/小葉金魚花,原生地為中美及南美以及中國雲南等地.

由於加拿大是溫帶所以我想夏末時盆植,冬天室內靠窗過冬,這樣隔年應該就能開花了!  它喜全日照不要太溼,容易以種子或枝條來扦插.  地植的成熟株高8-10呎,寬幅9吋到1呎寬.  種子有毒勿食.  花期為夏到秋,花吸引蜂蝶與鳥類. 可做切花花材.
