Mexican flame vine is a woody tropical vine with the enchanting
summertime habit of covering itself in brilliant daisy-like flowers.
The bright orange blossoms are about 1 in (2.5 cm) in diameter and
are borne in small clusters. As they age the flowers change from
orange to almost red. They are followed by fruiting structures that
resemble smaller versions of the dandelion's puffy seed heads. This
vine has thick evergreen leaves that are shaped like arrowheads and
serrated on the edges. They are arranged alternately on the vine and
are deep green in color providing a handsome background for the
fiery orange flowers.
Light: Bright sun or light shade.
