Masses of brilliant-colored, flower-like bracts emerge reddish orange and mature to a bright reddish pink, smothering the plant for many months. A vigorous, showy vine for patios or arbors with support, and a good groundcover for banks, left unsupported. Evergreen in frost-free areas; use as a colorful annual in cooler northern zones.
