These have such pretty flowers! I think I'll plant some again next year. I have seeds from 2018. They should still be viable, right?

#purple #hyacinthbean #hyacinthbeanvineplant #butterflyhostplant #skipperbutterfly There are lots! Of baby caterpillars in the folds on these leaves 😆 It frustrates me to see pics like this in garden groups that are asking what spray can be used to get rid of them 😦😣😠 This is their food source... know your plants, if you want perfection, stay in your house!

The long tail skipper layed eggs on these vines across the yard! It's amazing how they know which plants to lay their eggs on!

Didn't know they liked hyacinth bean plant. We grow it each year but haven't noticed any eggs etc. Maybe don't have the right insects/butterflies here🙁

They are attracted to plants in the bean and pea family @gjones... I grew this at my old place, never had it bothered there.
