A plant that I’m sure will greatly rise in popularity in our area over the coming years is Red Firecracker Vine. This little South American vine has survived several cold winters in our garden while proving to be quite a desirable plant. It flowers for several weeks from late summer through fall with its glowing bright red-orange tubular blooms that the hummingbirds absolutely love. An attractive and well-behaved vine with small leaves, it will fit well into any garden. Be sure to order early as this rarely offered gem will sell out pretty quick.
