Ratings & Reviews

Cardinal Creeper

Every single seed germinated within 8 days! They've been in the ground for about 2 months and were slow to adapt after the transplant but have since become accustomed to their new homes. The plant produces a vine that isn't very robust so take care when training it up a trellis or wall. Their red flowers are very beautiful and drop off naturally a day or two after fully blooming.
