Deciduous to semi-evergreen vine with beautiful reddish, pink or light pink, or white flowers.

Queens Wreath is very easily identified by its heart shaped leaves with long sprays of very distinctive pink flowers.

When temperatures fall, it dies back to the roots, after a few days below freezing.

This vigorous vine is used to cover fences or climb trellises with fresh green foliage and a splash of bright color. It is also used in urban plantings because it tolerates air pollution, restricted space, inadequate sunshine and poor soil.

Queens Wreath is beautiful and easy to grow. It's rapid growth rate and thick luxuriant foliage make it a good candidate for screening. The abundant and brilliantly beautiful flowers attacts bees, butterflies, and/or birds.

Considered invasive in some states like Florida. Not so in Arizona.
