Exotic, spurred blooms in bright, vermillion red appear throughout summer in a rich explosion of colour. The vibrant blooms are followed by spherical blue fruits set against a backdrop of attractive dark green foliage. Tropaeolum speciosum is an intriguing climbing perennial that prefers a cool, sheltered position. This sought after plant creates a spectacular sight when grown through mature shrubs or scrambling over low walls. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 1.2m (4').

How to Grow
Grow Tropaeolum speciosum in a sheltered position in sun or semi shade. The Flame Flower prefers a non-alkaline, fertile, moist soil with its roots shaded from the heat of the sun. To improve moisture retention, add plenty of well rotted manure to the soil prior to planting. Support the stems on trellis or wires, or allow them to scramble through mature shrubs. In particularly cold areas grow Flame Creeper plants in a conservatory or greenhouse, or planted in patio containers that can be kept in a frost free position over winter. Use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2.
More Info
Feed and water regularly while plants are in active growth. In autumn remove old, yellowed stems at ground level and apply deep, dry mulch such as bark chips to the crown of plants grown outdoors for winter protection. Container grown plants can be moved into a frost-free greenhouse for the winter.
