The small red flowers of this annual vine are extremely attractive to hummingbirds. Makes a good substitute for Morning Glory vines as it doesn't grow nearly as quickly or as large. Looks especially nice grown on a small obelisk.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7 where it is humid in the summer.
