An attractive climbing vine similar to the large flowered morning glories.
An extremely attractive climbing vine. The flowers are similiar in structure to morning glories but this specie produces many smaller, bright crimson-red, white-throated flowers that typically face up and out from the foliage. Makes for a pretty picture as it climbs on fences and arbours - where it can often reach over 3 m (10') in height! The flowers are quite attractive to hummingbirds.
