We’ve had kangkong or water convolvulus growing here for a couple of years now. I’ve grown the plants in recycled PET bottles, flower pots, and directly in the ground. Each time, the plants have borne pristine white flowers.
Last week, however, an unusual flash of colour caught my eye when I passed our overgrown kangkong plants. I saw this:
I know that there are different varieties of water spinach plants, and when I looked up images of kangkong flowers online, there were images of flowers just like our unusual one above. I’m just curious why this was the only one to have additional colour, unlike the regular white ones.
Ah well, the flowers are pretty, no matter what colour they may be!
