Evergreen vine, semi-evergreen in cooler areas, that requires support in order to climb. Stems are often red to purple turning greenish brown with age. Leaves are rounded and opposite.

Typical, honeysuckle-shaped flowers are NOT fragrant, but do attract hummingbirds and the occasional bee. Flowers are pale orange on the outside, yellow inside, and occur late spring to early summer.

If this vine gets too large, cut it back as much as necessary - it's a fast grower and often recovers within a single season. Wonderful when trained over an entry, arbor, or to soften the top of a privacy fence.

Not picky about soil, but does not do well in standing water. Give full sun for best flowering. Climbs by twining; will not hurt wood.
