Cypress Vine in my garden in Lucknow, North India

Cypress Vine or Cardinal Vine india

My garden in the rains, Lucknow, North India

In the monsoon rains, cypress vine seeds have germinated on their own from the seeds dropped during summer.

This vine is a hardy resident in my garden. It requires very little care. It simply knows when to sprout, and how to bloom! A liberal dose of organic fertilizer (aged cow-dung) and daily watering is all it asks. It is a delight in late winter, spring and early summer. Being a creeper with feathery leaves, it needs training and support. If nothing, it will fall around its own pot, looking like a ball gown in green and red :-)
