Showy bright-orange flowers on a vigorous vine. Hopefully at least root-hardy here in the southwestern Houston suburbs. We bought a modest-sized plant in fall with the expectation that it would take off the following year and help decorate our back fence – and it didn't disappoint. By late March, it had scaled the height of the fence, without any on-purpose support, and flowers appeared in early April. If anything, I'll have to be careful that it doesn't overrun its neighbors.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
