Sure to delight

This direct sow is a little more tricky to get started, although I find it easier to get going than the cypress vine. The flower is a smaller but bright red delight. The local Bumble bees love it and it even attracted hummingbirds! I loved it for helping to provide a bit of privacy by filling in my chain link fence.
A proper pollinated head will produce 1-4 seeds-which are quite easy to collect.
