Commonly called the Cardinal Climber, this is a plant that lives up to its name. The plants bloom with trumpet shaped flowers that are a true cardinal red. The flowers appear from mid-summer and continue blooming well into autumn before being killed by the first frosts of winter. An excellent source of nectar, they are attractive to butterflies and in hotter areas, are a favorite of hummingbirds.
This annual twining vine grows 8 to 12ft in length. The Cardinal Climber grows faster and is much fuller that the Cypress-vine due to it's showy lush green palm leaf like deeply lobed leaves. Annual in cooler climates. Container suitable.
