Latin Name: Antigonon leptopus

Description:

PLEASE NOTE: I grew and harvested these seeds in my garden in the USA. I use no pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer. The information I provide is from my growing experience and my personal research. Please research to see if this plant will grow in your area.

Other common names: Mexican creeper and chain of love This beautiful showy vine is sure to please everyone.

Hardy in zones 9-11, the vine grows fast enough to plant as an annual in cooler temps. The plant will freeze in zone 8, but regrows in the spring.

Beautiful ornamental. Plant coral vine on a trellis, fence or arbor. It can provide shade, privacy, and habitats for insects.

It provides a major source of food for butterflies and bees.

The vine has heart shaped leaves and produces masses of pink/coral blossoms.

The coral vine has many edible and medicinal properties, according to outside sources. I personally have not used this plant for those purposes.

The seeds supply food to birds and small mammals.

A great vine to add to any landscape. Although a fast grower, the deciduous nature of the vine will keep it in check.

Thank you for your interest and happy gardening.


Story of this Seed:

Many years ago a bird or squirrel or such gifted me with this plant when they dropped a seed or two in my back field. I let it grow and was extremely happy when I realized what the plant was. The coral vine is a major food source for bees.


Growing Tips:

Planting suggestions. Soaking seeds in warm temperature water for several hours may be of benefit to germination. Plant seeds in pre moistened potting mix of your choice. Transfer to larger pot or into the ground (after your last frost) when seedlings have obtained their second set of true leaves or when plant is several inches tall.
