    I had one of these for several years. Beautiful blooms and can take our high heat. However, it's not extremely cold hardy. One winter it got really cold and it succumbed. I've heard 25° to 30° on its hardiness, but mine survived temps lower than 25° before that front that got into the mid-teens finally wiped it out. I never saw my hummingbirds nectaring at that plant, but maybe it depends on the species of hummingbird.

    It is a very good grower. It blooms al the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Hummingbirds love it!

    I've only grown Podranea ricasoliana for about two and a half years now and it's one of my favorites! Although many places list it as evergreen, it will lose leaves during cold snaps here in my zone 9 Florida garden. It seems to be a very hardy vine and grows abundantly during our warm, humid summer. My plant is container grown. Podranea does not produce tendrils for climbing, so I have it tied to a trellis for support. My plant is located on the east side of the house, where it gets morning and early afternoon sun. It blooms nonstop from early summer through fall. Podranea prefers a well-draining potting medium and full sun to partially shady conditions. It is fairly drought tolerant once established, takes well to pruning, and produces beautiful and fragrant pink blooms.
