|This is my favorite native vine. It's twining vine habit is popular for mailboxes, trellises, fences, or arbors. A vigorous grower, it flowers abundantly April-June and prefers dry soils in full sun. This vine will not take over a large area like the Japanese species we are all too familiar with. It is quite tame compared to most vines and is a favorite of Hummingbirds with its coral red tubular flowers.
