The Chilean glory flower is an exotic-looking climber with wiry stems and sparse, dark, evergreen foliage which acts as a perfect backdrop to the bright red, orange or yellow tubular flowers, which appear from early summer into autumn. Its speed of growth provides a useful screen for the bare bases of climbing roses, or to disguise the balding lower areas of conifers. The plants are not hardy but in mild regions they may survive - dying down in winter and reappearing larger and stronger the following year. In very mild, sheltered areas the foliage may remain all winter. In cooler climates they will make a indoor suitable pot plant and should be treated as annual when grown outdoors.
