Protect this opulent vining tuber from frost and from hot, direct summer sun; cut to the ground every other year after it matures, and you'll have a long-lived exotic plan that will get hardier with maturity. Large, pendent umbels of waxy, red-orange, tubular flowers will be a hummer's delight and cause you to check your whereabouts. Have you been transported to sunnier climes unaware? Coming from northern South America it blooms in late spring or early summer and climbs to around 10'–12'. Whether the vine is evergreen or deciduous depends upon conditions.

Minimum temperature: 30° F
