Ipomoea lobata, Spanish Flag, Ipomoea versicolor, Quamoclit lobataCustomer Rating
An exotic looking climber, with twining stem ideal for rambling over trellises, fences etc. The flowers are very impressive with up to 12 per flower spike producing a spectacular combination as they age. They start off a most powerful and stunning bright red and as they mature they go from red to orange, orange to yellow and from yellow to white and all are out at the same time. A plant positively loaded with flowers is an impressive sight. Climbs to 120-180cm (4-6ft). More info
