The Q&A Archives: Source for Cardinal Climber ("Cypress Flower")

Question: I'm looking for seeds of a "cypress flower." It is a cimbing vine with brilliant red five-pointed star shaped flowers and leaves which are soft green with 12 or so rounded deep lobes. The flowers are about 3/4 inch across. The leaves are about 1 1/2inch long and reminiscent of a cypress leaf. I would greatly appreciate a source for these seeds. Thanks.
