Hi Joy, finally had the bright idea to google Garlic Vine and can now report to you the proper latin name: Cydista Aequinoctialis. Quite a mouthfull! :giggle:

But a Morning Glory it isn't, definitely not - the leaves are different, the flowers grow in round clusters, and the vine is much more "woody" than morning glory.

You are right, the smell of garlic isn't bad at all, I use it for cooking, but I find that it's just such a crazy combination - lovely flowers like this.... and the smell of garlic!

Other then smelling like garlic, are they related to the edible bulb at all?

You have the most unusual & exotic plants over there.
Just lovely!

Yes, we do have some very interesting greenery here - this is the tropics after all! But temperate climates also have very beautiful flowers - just think of all the lovely tulips, rhododentron, magnolias iris etc. etc. etc. you get in springtime.... and which I'm missing.
I don't think my garlic vine has anything to do with the garlic you use for cooking. The real garlic is a bulb and grows in the soil, like onions, while this one is a purely ornamental vine.

Yeah, I am originally from S. Texas the heat keeps everything but the cacti & the mesquite from doing well (unless it is irrigated/watered a lot) so all those flowers tulips, irises, magnolias, rhododendrons that grow in the temperate zone are new & fascinating to me as well...as are the ones that grow in your area. The difference being that I have seen those flowers but have never encountered yours. You do a beautiful job representing the flora in your area.

I just noticed in your description "Arches 600g CP" are you sure it's 600grs? For, mine is Arches 640g CP. Not that I'm trying to nitpick, I just wonder if Arches has 600gr aside from 640g...Just wonder...And how do you like the paper? I cannot tell much, since I use less water.

Oh, I'm sure you are right - then it must be 640 g. I really don't remember. I only bought one sheet and there wasn't any sticker or such with the exact weight.
Can't say I'm too crazy about it. I mean it "paints" just the way as the 300 g, so for me it's really just unnecessary expense and I'll stick to my usual 300 g.

No, I don't have a garlic vine in my garden here but in Singapore I did, and there's a house a little way down my street here that has one, too.
The one in the painting, however, was growing on Malapascua Island. ;)

That's wonderful ! Wow, you are a good worker. Did you enjoy doing this painting or do you find it's still a challenge to do something like that?
The flowers remind me a bit of petunias...never heard of a garlic vine. Well done! :)

As for being a challenge - well, isn't every painting - or any artwork, come to that? :giggle:

Hi Pat, thanks for your reply to my question! I don't know if every painting is a challenge. Some seem to just paint themselves. I think watercolours are more challenging, at least for me. I guess most people who paint in watercolour will learn a lot from making a lot of mistakes at first. It's good to have a challenge. If it was too easy, it wouldn't be as much fun.
Cheers! :) Karin :heart:

To tell you the truth.... I was sort of counting on you to tell me the official/ botanical name of this vine. :lmao:
I only know it as "garlic vine" - that's what they called it in Singapore, and that's what they call it here.
