*****HUMMINGBIRD VINE *****
This annual vine is a magnet for hummingbirds!!
Spring means that hummingbirds will soon be returning soon to your garden!
The lacy fern-like foliage is as interesting as the dainty 2 inch red tubular flowers and as attractive for your garden as well as the beautiful hummingbirds. This rapid growing vine has bright red blooms on delicate fern-like foliage. Vines flower from midsummer to frost. They will climb as tall as the structure you place them near and can reach from 10' to 20' in one season with at least 4 months of those beautiful blooms. Like Morning Glory, the flowers open in the morning and close at night.
Once established, they need very little care and yield LOTS AND LOTS of blooms for the butterflies, bumble bees, hummingbirds and, of course, YOU, to enjoy! They grow best in sandy average soil and in full sun or partial shade and have average water needs.
