Bang for your buck
We have a plant here in Arizona that we call "Cat's claw" but in Spanish it is known as Una de Gato or as Indian name of Vilcacora. It is a woody vine found in the tropical jungles of South and Central America and it derives its name form it's claw-shaped thorns.
Several years ago I planted two of these plants in a little planter in the side yard
See the woody stock to the right
They grew and covered the whole wall
Covered and hangs down the arbor
and hangs over the back side of the wall....now that's what I call a bang for your buck!
