The Tecomanthe petticoat vine is a very interesting plant. The plant is considered half hardy and is a little bit aggressive in its growth. Once this plant is established, it does not require a lot of care at all. This vine is perfect for warm temperature settings. These regions require a tough vine.
- The descriptive name of pink petticoat vine refers to the thickly decorated wiry stems that are coated with layers of the hot pink blooms.
- As such, they prefer low to medium light, humus rich soil, high humidity and even moisture.
- This is truly an eye-stopping specimen that will adorn your garden space for years with very little extra care.
“Vines can very quickly achieve lengths of 25 feet or more and will require pruning to prevent the complete takeover of an area.”
