Fence Row 3
You can find these naturally occurring flowering vines weighing down the fence rows beside the fields here in SW Ohio. The blooms start coming on around the time of the first hot weather, end of May or early June. The flowers last about a month and the ruby throated hummingbirds love them. Probably developed together, the birds' beaks being suited to getting down the long bell of the flowers.
