I purchased this Mexican Flame vine last summer at a Florida native plant sale (although with a name like Mexican Flame vine this is definitely not a Florida native). The vine is now in full spring bloom and looking gorgeous!
I was told that this vine is a favorite of butterflies and bees; so far the bees seem to be happy with the flowers.
The bright orange flowers are 1 inch in diameter and appear in small clusters. As they age the blooms change from brilliant orange to almost red. The seed heads resemble smaller versions of dandelion seed heads.
