Semi-evergreen foliage and sophisticated tricolor blooms.
A favorite of hummingbirds, the blooms feature tepals of white, creamy yellow, and port red all side-by-side in a cup-shaped form. Sweetly aromatic, these big, charming blooms offer up plenty of nectar for pollinators to sip for several months! Few plants make such a dependable drinking fountain for those beautiful hummers! The late-summer crop of reddish berries also attracts songbirds!
New leaves come on rich purple and mature to dark grey-green. In warmer areas, the leaves hold all winter; in colder climates, the leaves shed in the fall.
A beautiful and deliciously fragrant vine, 'Winchester' is also astonishingly robust. Heat tolerant and nearly indestructible, this is a worry-free way to attract butterflies and hummingbirds and add vertical interest. Or you can let it spread across the ground and astonish visitors with its flowering beauty! Water frequently, especially in hot climates. Z 5-9
