Found in 1980 in Germany as an “accidental” seedling, this plant was included into the Huismann / Holland range of Campsis hybrids and replaces 'Campsis radicans.' Named after the passionate Spanish dance form. A Self-clinger with adhesive roots, it can initially grow without any support up to 12m high. Nevertheless a support system is highly recommended. Flowers very similar to the wild form, ie red to dark red with red-orange (instead of orange-yellow) throat and long trumpet. 'Flamenco' flowers earlier, more profusely and more reliably than the wild form, the flowers are densely arranged with 10 - 15 flowers per bunch. Excellent frost-hardiness. Refer to General Information for location, pruning, suitable cable systems etc.
