Description
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).

Sowing
Soak overnight in cold water or file a tiny notch in the seed coat before sowing. Sow seed individually in pots in early spring at 21-24C (70-75F) 6mm (0.25in) deep in a good seed compost, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-16 days.

Grow on in cooler conditions, and transplant into 13cm (5in) pots. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, once the weather has warmed up. Plant 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny sheltered and warm site in rich, moist soil and provide them with something to climb.
