How is it that this fabu­lous, bountifully blooming vine is so little known? Overflowing with surprisingly large 3” flaring bright rose tubular blooms, long twining/trailing stems delight from mid-Summer till frost. Even when not in bloom, the densely held emerald triangular leaves are a luscious addition to your garden. This Mexican native is sheer bliss on an arbor or obelisk! Do provide compost rich soil. Great in large containers. Cut back to 1’ in Winter. Hummingbird magnet! Grows up to 12’ in a season.
