Love-in-a-Puff Vine for Summer Weddings

Seeds have been sown for late spring blooming plants, and now it's time to start focusing on summer plants.
One that always has a special place at Springwell Gardens is Love-in-a-Puff- cardiospermum halicacabum, (see previous posts from past summers). It's a summer vine with LOTS of delicate tendrils and billowy little puffs that add a lovely rustic
drape and texture to centerpiece and ceremony designs.
But what is really irresistible is using Love-in-a-Puff in bridal bouquets,
for inside each of the puffs are tiny heart impressed seeds
 Love-in-a-Puff is available at Springwell Gardens from late May until frost.
 I always encourage my brides to save the dried puffs from their bouquets and remove the seeds. They make a romantic little keepsake, or can be planted later to grow your own Love-in-a-Puff vines!
