OTHER: The sizzling Firecracker Vine is native to Mexico & South America. Everyone that sees them falls in love instantly! The vines are fast growing & flower the first year from seed, so can easily be grown as an annual anywhere. The plants will also reseed themselves helping provide new plants the following year. The dazzling blooms flower all summer long into the fall, & will bloom year round in tropical climates. Plants tolerate heat & drought very well, & can be grown in containers. Grow these climbers on trellises, arbors, arches, or fences. The Firecracker Vine’s fast growing lush foliage can create a great hide for anything less beautiful.
Huge 5" spikes of flowers jut out over the green shapely 3-lobed leaves. The showy 1 - 2" tubular flowers start out red, & fade to orange, yellow, & white, with all the colors showing at once progressing down the flower spikes. The flowers are high in nectar, & attract bees, butterflies, & HUMMINGBIRDS. Firecracker flowers also make a great cut flower, so bring a few indoors to liven things up!

Great price, fast shipment. (Haven't planted yet, so can't speak to that!) Thank you!

I've never tried this vine but it looks like a vine my hummingbirds will like. Even if they don't, I can enjoy it myself. I'm redoing my entire garden this year into vegetable & flower raised beds to attract more birds, butterflies & good bugs. I can hardly wait to get these seeds started & planted.

Very good seller. Healthy looking seeds. Very helpful information on each of the packets. First seedling is starting to come up on a very hard to find vine. 🙂

A little slow to ship (about two weeks from when order was placed to when order was shipped). Planted three seeds to start and all three have sprouted (and did so quickly)!
