Annual. Blooms summer to fall. 8'-20' vine. Full sun. Stunning feathery, fern-like foliage with masses of white, pink and red tubular flowers that flare into a five-pointed star. An exotic, tropical vine that hummingbirds love! Makes an excellent screen and easy cover for a trellis or fence.
When to plant outside: Sow in spring after average last frost or up until early summer when soil temperatures are warm. (Do not plant too early.)
When to start inside: Sow 6-8 weeks before planting outside in late spring or early summer. Sow into pulp pots and transplant directly outside to avoid disturbing roots.
