Botanical Pronunciationlon-ISS-er-a sem-per-VEY-renz mag-NIF-ih-kuh
Average Size at MaturityTwining stems quickly reach 10 to 20 ft. tall, with support.
Bloom TimeSpring into Fall
Design IdeasThe coral-red 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.
