BEAUTIFUL CORAL VINE
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 may regrow 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. Please do your own research if you are interested in the medicinal/edible properties of the plant. I grow the plant for ornamental purposes and for the wildlife.
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.
How I grow the seeds in zone 9b. It is not necessary to remove the outer papery husk, but it may speed germination a little. I soak the small seeds in room temperature water for several hours. Plant seeds in pre moistened potting mix of your choice. Lightly over with additional soil and press gently to ensure good seed to soil contact. Keep the seeds warm and do not let the soil dry out. Transfer to a 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.

Answer this question
Sorry about the delay in answering. I am not getting notifications. Coral vine should be planted outside after your last projected frost date. The seeds can be started in seed cells indoors or in a hot house 4-6 weeks earlier. Thanks and happy gardening.
