Moderate to fast-growing tropical evergreen vine with stems to 10-15’ long with support. This long-admired variety is best-suited to milder climates and features lush crinkled deep-green foliage highlighted with a profusion of eye-catching trumpet-shaped pink flowers with deep-pink throats and a touch of yellow that makes this popular variety a landscape favorite. Flowers appear throughout summer or nearly year-round in mild climates. Well-suited for fences arbors or trellises and makes a great patio container specimen that can be moved to a frost-protected location for overwintering in cooler climates. Requires regular watering in a fast-draining soil which is essential for this vine to prosper. Prefers a partial sun to light shade exposure.
