    Mina lobata

    With its red and yellow flowers like a row of brightly coloured pennants, you can see exactly why Mina lobata is called Spanish Flag.  This unlikely relative of the Morning Glory comes into its own at this time of year – Sarah Raven has hers growing at the end of a row in her cutting garden, mine are peeping out amongst the foliage of my climbing French beans, making them look very decorative.
