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!

So far so good. The plants are coming along nicely. Should be able to transplant after this heat wave. As some mentioned, not all seeds germinated, but that's true for all of these kinds of plants in my experience, so I was not surprised or disappointed.
