|Botanical Pronunciation||lon-ISS-er-a sem-per-VEY-renz|
|Average Size at Maturity||Twining stems quickly reach 6 to 10 ft. tall, with support.|
|Bloom Time||Spring through Summer|
|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.|
