It is an evergreen woody vine native to Colombia that flowers during the summer.

Glowvines reach between 10-15 feet of height and spread at the same rate. They grow best in full sun or semi-shade, provided they have access to regular water in the summer months when the blooming is at its peak. To achieve the most lush flower production, fertilization should take place during the growing season. Plant care will be easier if they are grown in pots during the winter in colder regions.

The flowers of Saritaea magnifica, also known as Glowvine, come in shades of blue, lavender and purple and attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds due to the bright colors and sweet nectar. This vine blooms starting in the spring and continues up until the fall creating an array of colors in the garden.

Glowvines are suitable for growing in the USDA Zones 9-11 and can be great for creating a vibrant landscape. While this plant is not frost hardy and can suffer from cold temperatures, if grown in pot, it can likely be brought indoors during the winter months to ensure a longer lifespan.
