Mexican Flame Vine

Mexican Flame Vine is a fast growing, heat loving plant that features attractive evergreen foliage. The small clusters of brilliant orange, daisy-like blooms contrast well with the dark green leaves. Although the blooms peak in spring and summer, the vine often produces blooms throughout the year. Mexican Flame Vine is great for adding color to an unsightly fence or to crawl up a trellis. The scientific name, senecio confusus, translates to “confused old man” referring to its growth habit when not supported. Without something to crawl up on this vine will grow this way and that in a confusion of stems that pile up over time and eventually it looks like a sprawling shrub.
