Clerodendrum x speciosum 'Red Wine'
Tender woody vine sporting clusters of wine-red flowers held in soft pink calyces. In our garden it takes the place of its cousin C. thomsoniae, which passed away soon after being planted along our north fenceline, where its roots and base are shaded both by the fence and neighboring plants. Although the hardiness rating I found online says zone 10, it survived its first mild (Z9A?) winter in our garden, continuing to bloom even after the early-season freezes felled the tenderest garden denizens.
