Firecracker Vine is a superb plant with colorful scarlet flowers that are tipped with yellow and resemble small, lit firecrackers. Blooming from fall through spring, it provides more than 6 months of continuous enjoyment. The flowers are stunning, it is always in bloom, low-maintenance, not picky about light, does well in containers, the foliage is lush, and it grows well indoors. Wherever you put it, Firecracker Vine will light up your garden with hundreds of eye-catching flowers! This miniature vine is a member of the Coffee family, although it bears no resemblance to it at all. It will grow in full to partial sun. Perfect houseplant, it does well indoors and out, and can grow to 15 feet outdoors as long as it is supported well.
