Colorful vine from South America. Grows to 4–6 ft. tall and as wide; to 10–15 ft. trained against a wall, on a bank, or on a trellis. Ribbed, oval bright green leaves to 1/2 in. long. Large, loose clusters of 1-in., orange (sometimes yellow) flowers are carried at branch ends from spring to early fall (nearly all year in frost-free areas).
