Prized by gardeners and by hummingbirds for its summer-long display of bright red tubular flowers with flaring lobes, this annual twining vine is native from Mexico to South America and naturalized throughout the tropics.
The ferny compound leaves are also attractive.
Easily raised from seed, it thrives in well-drained soil in sun.
Train it up a fence or patio-side trellis, thread it through a shrub, or use it in a hummingbird garden.
