Crazy Lipstick Plant! Anyone know what it's doing?
I have had this lipstick plant for years - moved it from Northern VA to central OR and it continues to produce masses of flowers several times a year. It's really long - I've never pruned it, but was planning on it this year just to get some new growth. It just finished flowering a few weeks ago, and now, for the FIRST time EVER, it's doing something strange - from the base of the green cup that the flower comes from, it has a tendril about the same size as the vine coming out!! No leaves on it, about 8 inches long, coming out from the flower base!! Doing this on 4-5 different vines! Any ideas? I don't want to prune those vines back until I have a better idea what's going on!!!
