Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

This guy was mostly hidden under a thick, overgrown #passionvine canopy. I thought I'd relocate it to a sunnier spot. A few weeks ago, I carelessly transplanted it (just grabbed the base and pulled it out like an idiot) and may have killed it. Fortunately, a small offshoot remains in the original spot. Will wait for it to grow a bit before I CAREFULLY dig it up.
