This vigorous, hardy, very long-lived, self-clinging climber has a truly exotic look, with glossy pinnate leaves and large trumpet-shaped flowers in vivid orange or red. Truly eye-catching, this lovely plant will enhance any pergola or can be trained over a wall, or even mask unsightly features.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
Common name:Trumpet Vine, hummingbird Vine
