The fire vine is a twining climber that grows with moderate to strong vigour, to a height up to about 5 metres. The flowers open one after the other in rows, with a play of colours ranging from red to yellow-orange to yellow-white. Flowering lasts from July to frost. The foliage is dense in sunny locations and can form a privacy screen.
(latin: Mina lobata or Ipomoea lobata)
