Design Ideas The coral-pink flowers are very showy when cascading off wood fences, twining up lattice and shrouding unsightly wire field fencing or chain link. Perfect in the woodland garden, where it can gracefully climb into trees, living or not. 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.
Flower Color Red
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Coneflower (Echinacea); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Aster (Aster); Bee Balm (Monarda); Butterfly Weed (Asclepias)
CARE
Care Easily grown in average, well-drained soils. Best flowering occurs with full sun exposure. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Climbs by twining; will not hurt wood. Prune annually to control size; will recover from heavy pruning within a single season.
