||One of, if not the coolest native vines we have in the Eastern US. It is a semi-evergreen vine that lends a tropical look to the landscape. It flowers profusely in spring and occasionally in summer. The flowers provide the nectar for early migrating hummingbirds as well as butterflies. In colder weather the foliage turns a plum color that persists all winter. This drought tolerant vine prefers growing in sunny locations. Very fast, easy to grow with many selected color forms to choose from, this variety is more of a tangerine orangey color.
