Create colorful vertical accents in your garden with Almost Eden's wide selection of vines to cover your trellis, arbor, fence, or wall. We have a great selection of native and ornamental, evergreen and deciduous, woody or perennial, fragrant, vines to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators, as well as free flowering tropical vines, climbers, and scandent shrubs that are sure to fit your needs. From the wonderfully fragrant and non-invasive Evergreen Wisteria and Jasmines, tame native Coral Honeysuckles, the unusual Parachute and Bushman's Pipe vines, as well as exotic flowering and fruiting Passionflower vines and many other beautiful, unusual, and often rare vines.
Along with the Coral Honeysuckles, this is easily our top recommended vine for attracting hummingbirds! The bright red, 2" long, tubular flowers are born in profusion from spring to fall on this vigorous but small growing perennial vine that appears to have been perfectly designed for hummingbirds. Few other manageable, perennial, hummingbird attracting vines can compete with the John Elsley Firecracker Vine, a selection of Manettia cordifolia, when it comes to sheer flower power! This is an easy to grow twining, herbaceous vine that dies to the ground in winter in the northern parts of its range and readily returns each spring from potato-like tubers. Easy enough to overwinter in a container indoors where hardiness is questionable. Item# 418
