This ruby colored beauty belongs in courtyards and around outdoor living spaces where the blossoms can be enjoyed close up. They are gorgeous spiraled up wood posts and classical Greek style columns. These plants are also draped over walls and fences in a mass of color. In the Old World they can be found trained into the branches of long dead trees for natural arbor. They are also used as groundcovers to cascade down banks and slopes, and to dangle off retaining wall edges.|
