This vigorous, showy vine shines with bright, magenta-red, petal-like bracts. Creates a fine cover for patios or arbors, and is a dramatic groundcover for banks when allowed to ramble unsupported. Drought tolerant when established. Evergreen in frost-free climates; provides superb warm season color in colder winter areas.
