This vine grows very large. This vine grows in many areas, along the freeways around cyclone fences.

Be it brightens up those areas makes a change to see red flowering vines.

That's as heavy a bloom as I've seen on them. I knew somebody Andy who had that and Bougainvillea and I think Passiflora all growing together. I wish I had taken a photo back 12 or 13 years ago.

Yes, it's a very nice vine to brighten up a drab area.

I know they grow very well up there and are a very common, also. This vine grows too fast for me, though.
