This plant is native to Mexico and can cover large expanses of space in the wild given the right conditions. It will climb and/or creep via delicate looking tendrils. The flowers are small and a bold pink, and in my area (zone 11) they bloom year round. I understand it is also available with white flowers. I've never seen a plant with "Coral" flowers and so am puzzled by how it got to be commonly called "Coral Vine". It is also commonly called "Rose of Montana," which is a little bit funny because it is called "Rosa de Montaña" in Spanish, which translates as "Mountain Rose". Somewhere along the line of creating common names for plants, someone had a whoops moment, which appears to have stuck.

A plant found from fallen seeds from vine after it died came up Spring 2018. Now at 12" I moved into a 6" pot

The honey bees love this vine. I give it no care whatsoever. Survived all its own through the summer heat.
