Comments: This is a relatively fast growing vine that produces orange-pink flowers during the warm months of the year. Flowers fade so there are multiple colored flowers on the plant at the same time. This vine will take light freezes, but will return the following spring. In areas of hard freezes treat it as an annual. This makes a handsome trailing vine planted in a hanging basket. Fertilize several times during the growing season to encourage more growth and flowering.
