BIGNONIA capreolata 'Shalimar Red'
Crossvine, Shalimar Red Crossvine
Shalimar Red crossvine is a semi-evergreen vine with attractive red flowers appearing in spring. This plant reblooms sparingly during the summer months. A native of the central and southern United States and extreme southern Canada, its dark green summer foliage turns a purplish color in winter.
Crossvine should be placed in a sunny location with a moist, well draining soil. In the coldest zones leaves may drop during winter months. This cultivar will readily ramble over trellises, fences, and through trees, but is not as large when mature as the species form.
