Coral Vine is a native of Mexico. This delightful vine is fast growing, climbing with tendrils, and will reach 40'. Leaves are dark green, heart-shaped to arrowhead shaped and up to 5 inches long. It produces edible tubers. Stunningly beautiful blooms occur from midsummer to fall when the plant is covered with small rose pink flowers to 1 1/2 inch long. This vine should be cut back hard after flowering to keep it in check. We have found it to be frost-sensitive.
