Manettia cordifolia is one of our favorite warm-climate vines, yet it's still relatively unknown in gardening circles. Firecracker vine emerges in very late spring and is an elegant twining vine with tiny leaves climbing skyward on anyone or anything nearby. Starting in mid-summer and lasting well into fall, the vines burst forth with tiny, 1", red-orange blooms that look like miniature firecrackers (red with a yellow tip)...irresistible to hummingbirds. Firecracker vine grows just fast enough to be garden-worthy, but not fast enough to be a pest...simply exquisite! We offered this under the incorrect name of Manettia inflata for several seasons.
