We Have A Mystery

Let me qualify that. We have a mystery plant in our yard. It all started the first summer we were here.  A twig next to one of the cedar trees produced leaves. No one knew exactly what it was so we all just watered it and let it grow. Each year, it has returned and each year, it is larger.

This year, it’s about three feet tall and I want to know what it is.

If it is what I’m beginning to think it is, I’m not disappointed. Any input?

Oh, you want to know what I think it might be? Well, after having consulted on a couple of different websites, I’m beginning to think it’s a Catalpa. Where it came from, I have no idea! Quite literally, when we moved in here, it was a stick in the ground that was, perhaps, about 12″ tall.

Any thoughts?

  1. I guess you might find out for sure, when it starts making long bean looking seed pods. 🙂 Good luck, it’s rather pretty.

    • Geri, it does look like a sweet potato vine except for the fact that it has a stalk… and it comes back year after year. Sweet potato is a vine, not a stalk like this. I’ve grown a sweet potato vine.. and have one almost ready for planting as I write. This definitely isn’t a sweet potato vine. I do appreciate the input, though.
