Plant Description

Crossvine is a woody vine growing to 50 feet or so with compound, semi-evergreen leaves and very showy summer flowers. It is common throughout the east where it winds its way up trees and telephone poles, and holds on by twining tendrils that can dig into tree bark. The wild type has clusters of trumpet-shaped red and yellow flowers, but 'Tangerine Beauty' has clusters flaring bright orange ones. Flowering occurs along the stems on older growth so any pruning should be done right after flowering. Grow Tangerine Beauty in sun or part shade, and average soil, and give it a reasonably strong support. Hummingbirds will flock to this crossvine.
