Trailing Windmills — Image by kenne

The orchid-colored trailing windmills is a vine that grows along the ground; the plant may be 10 feet across.
The stems, leaves, and buds are covered with soft white hair. The stems and flowers are sticky, and one rarely finds
a flower without grains of sand stuck on the upper surface. Technically, what appears to be 1 flower is a cluster
of 3 resembling a single radially symmetrical flower but no one but a trained botanist would ever guess it.
