My son named this plant 'Cousin It'. Cousin It is from 'The Addam's Family' which was a hit in the 60's. I was just a child then so he must have been watching re-runs to make this connection. It does bear some resemblance. He noticed it from the living room window. It has taken over the bird feeder post with vining, thick tendrils and it has been late to bloom. Frost is imminent here and I was a bit concerned that I would not see any flowers but they are appearing and they are worth the wait. Spanish flag is a common name for this plant and the Latin name, Ipomoea lobata shows its relation to its cousin, the morning glory, Ipomoea tricolor. This reminds me that I did not plant 'Heavenly Blue' this year and now I miss it. Maybe these two would look interesting twining together. I guess late bloom is normal with this family of plants. 'Heavenly Blue' takes its sweet time blooming for me. I will plant this one again. It is a bit unusual and the flowers are quite lovely. Have any of you grown Spanish flag? Did it bloom late for you?
