Richmond Birdwing Vine

I purchased this plant for the Richmond Butterfly as I have native bees and love to see creatures in my garden. At this stage the vine is just establishing it self but I love to watch it extend up my trellis

Richmond Birdwing Vine

We planted one about 6 months ago. It's now spring and is about 2 meters tall. We've lead it up via twine to a palm tree. It seems very happy but we're yet to see any flowers or butterflies. Hopefully over the summer.
