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, with the aid of tiny tendrils, sends its equally tiny leaves climbing skyward on anyone or anything nearby. In late summer the vines burst forth with tiny, 1", red-orange blooms (until fall) 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.
