50 fresh seeds, collected this September and October, for this season.
This beautiful, heirloom vine is a vigorous grower and happily scrambles over fences, trees, or collapsing barns. It's not uncommon to see dead tree skeletons left standing (particularly since Texas enduring a record, tree killing drought conditions for over 3 years) just to support breath taking displays of Coral Vine.
Antigonon is a native of Mexico and for generations has been widely grown across Texas and much of the southeast US for its beautiful, lacy coral, hot pink, or occasionally white flowers that begin early, break out in full force after the first good summer rain and persist until frost.
The textured heart-to-triangular shaped leaves are dense enough to provide heavenly, cooling summer shade on trellises, pergolas and arbors.
Very easy to grow with adequate drainage and PLENTY OF SUN.
In my area, USDA ZONE 8, the first hard frost will kill the top growth and knock it back to the ground, but established plants produce sweet potato-like tubers that bounce back readily and rapidly in the spring.
Seeds started in the fall will not have time to establish tubers, so they should be germinated in pots and be wintered over inside, and set out into the landscape in spring. After germinating and developing good root systems in the landscape, the vines are very drought tolerant.
EVERGREEN in USDA ZONES 9 - 11, and DECIDIOUS in ZONE 8…..grow as an annual or in containers farther north.
It will tolerate poor soil and a wide range of light conditions. These great characteristics which make the vine so sturdy, easy and rewarding in the landscape can also contribute to its becoming invasive in areas with climates of perpetual summers, where there is no real winter cold to retard and contain growth. People living is such locales should check the status of this plant in their area.
