Medusa Gorgona, Red Rapunzel, Twisted Cord Flower
Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Tropical Asia
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Long red tendrils twisting off each flower petal are the defining feature of this tropical Asian climber. The white star-shaped flowers have red striping that leads into the exotic tendrils. This summer bloomer produces clusters of flowers that arrive on and off over several weeks, and as new growth continues, the blooming cycle is repeated. Its stiff rambling stems need support yet with some staking and some encouragement it makes a beautiful specimen.
