Product Details

Need a vine for a trellis, pole, or fence? Cardinal climber makes a nice partner with scarlet runner bean or morning glory. Deep red flowers with a white/yellow throat attract pollinators and hummingbirds like crazy! We can't say enough about the beautiful, fern-like foliage that together with the flowers make this an eye-catcher! Great container variety. Caution: Most parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
