Plants That Attract Hummingbirds
Comments: This drought tolerant vine has clusters of orange-red flowers during all the warm months. It is a favorite of hummingbirds. Vine attached itself to tree trunks, power poles and other surfaces and blooms best after it becomes well established. Vine can be a nusiance in some situations where growth is not controlled.
