Brigard Fact #33

In the southern end of Brigard grows a plant known as sparkle-vine. Sparkle-vine is a climbing vine that wraps its way up tree trunks and along the lower branches. In late spring, the vine produces an immense number of conical, maroon flowers. These flowers make an iridescent pollen that scatters in even the slightest breeze, which attracts the butterflies which are crucial to their survival. Due to their pretty nature, sparkle-vines are popular as garden plants.
