Showy Red-Flowering Vine
by Charlie Nardozzi
Looking for a new flowering annual vine to add to your summer collection? Look no further than the ?Great Cascade Wine Red? Lophospermum. The attractive light green, hairy leaves have ruffled edges, and the velvety red trumpet-shaped flowers bloom from early summer until frost. This tropical annual grows equally well cascading out of a hanging basket or climbing up a trellis or pillar. The vine also is vigorous enough to hide an old stump or fence.
Lophospermum thrives in full sun but can withstand part shade. The flowers are also favorites of hummingbirds.
