Comments: A high climbing, insect and disease free vine that has hot pink flowers for several weeks, beginning in late summer. A great vine for the Lower South. Well adapted to sites with full sunlight. Nice growing on fences, walls, and garden structures like pergolas and arbors. After top freezes back in early winter remove old growth. Returns from the root in early spring with flowering beginning in mid to late summer. Insects are attracted to the flowers. A popular vine for old gardens of the South.
