NARRATIVE Aggressive twining climber for sturdy structures including pergolas, walls, and trees. Abundant flowers in foot long hanging racemes in summer create a display that attract hummingbirds. Will tolerate dry areas but flowers more freely if watered regularly. Can be destructive to delicately built support structures. Spectacular addition to the garden with regular pruning and sturdy support for twiggy stems.
