An extremely pretty small herbaceous perennial climber from Brazil with lots of 2 in pure scarlet tubular flowers in late summer and autumn. Cultivation information is a little scarce but American sites seem to agree that this will grow in USDA z8 and as I grow quite a lot of z8 plants here I’m pleased to give it a try.
Even if it ends up being one of those plants that needs bringing in in the winter it will be worth it because of its modest size and the fact that it dies down completely to tuberous roots, which makes it very easy to handle. An ideal small vine for decorating shrubs or putting on a trellis.
