Bring on the color and fragrance with Cross-vine! This playful vine is a garden standout, with its stunning orange-red trumpet-shaped flowers. Watch it quickly cover structures with its dark green leaves and adhesive tendrils. Enjoy its beauty year-round, with evergreen foliage in the South and striking reddish-purple in the fall. Ideal for full sun to part shade and well-drained soils, Cross-vine is easy to care for and will reward you with abundant blooms in the spring. Prune after flowering if needed, and watch out for its root suckers! A close cousin to the trumpet vine, Cross-vine is a must-have for any garden.
