Botanical Pronunciationlon-ISS-er-a
Average Size at MaturityFast growing, upright vine with stems 10 to 20 ft. long.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasThese beautiful Fuchsia-like flowers are remarkably hardy. Coral-red flowers are very showy when cascading off wood fences, twining up lattice and shrouding unsightly wire or chain-link fencing. Excellent for shade and color on arbors overhead or snaking up stone or concrete pillars. Particularly nice when allowed to cascade off concrete block or railroad tie retaining walls. If left to sprawl, it will behave a lot like groundcover on slopes and embankments.
