Pyrostegia venusta (Flame Vine) Details

Commonly known as Flamevine, this is an amazing climber that produces masses of bright and unusual flowers. It carries mid green leaves which literally disappear during winter and spring behind a shroud of bright orange flowers. The showy flowers are showy and literally transform the plant. It is fast growing and will reach 10 m if it has something to climb and left untrimmed. More often, it is contained with trimming. Best performance with this evergreen is achieved when it is grown on a well-drained, sheltered site in full sun. It is tolerant of moderate frost and short periods of dry. The Flame Vine is commonly included in tropical or cottage gardens, planted for winter colour, used to cover a fence or other support structure, or allowed to cascade over a wall. This is a great plant for bringing warmth to an area.
