The flame vine from Brazil is a rampant grower able to cover very large areas with glorious color. Its powerful growth means the owner has to be watchful it does escape up utility poles, into neighbors' yards, onto roofs, etc

It is best to prune your vine back hard after the blooming season

Use flame vine where you want quick, thorough coverage.  For example, if you have a chain link fence, Flame Vine will quicly cover and provide vivid color.  Plant Flame Vine 3-4 feet apart along your fence

Flame vine blooms in later winter and into the spring in South Florida. Plant in full sun to partial shade into plain sandy soil but enriched with organic matter. Water to establish then there is little else to do but enjoy

Fertilize normally, but lightly
