Ipomoea quamoclit, commonly called cypress vine, is native to tropical America. It is a warm weather annual twining vine of the morning glory family that is ornamentally grown for its attractive scarlet flowers and fern-like foliage. It typically will grow 6-10’ long, but infrequently to as much as 20’ long. Each green leaf (2-4” long) is pinnately divided into threadlike segments, giving the foliage a ferny appearance. Scarlet red flowers (to 3/4” across) bloom in small cymes from early summer into fall. Each tubular flower is star-shaped, flaring open at the mouth into five pointed lobes. Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.

Growing Instructions

  4. Put the seeds on the soil.
  5. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil.
  6. Water the seeds.
  7. Place the pots in an area with warm temperatures in full sun or part shade.
