Synonym: Asarina lophospermum.

One of the best-kept secrets of the plant world can now be yours! Creeping Gloxinia (Lophospermum) is a Mexican vine with very large blooms, vigorous growth, and an almost endless season of bloom. In the wild its plants set flowers just on the ends of each stem, but the brilliant Lofos™ series from Suntory introduces plants that bloom all up and down each stem, for nonstop color from mid-spring through mid-fall!

A trailing vine, Lofos™ can be trained up a trellis or threaded through a fence as well as cascading magnificently from hanging baskets and windowboxes. This is the annual you want front and center on the patio, porch, or deck, its breathtaking rich purple-red hues dominating the landscape. Very tolerant of excessive heat and so fast growing you won't believe its takeoff in spring, Lofos™ resists pests and diseases too, giving you nothing but healthy foliage and nonstop flowers over three long, lovely seasons!

The blooms are tubular, measuring 3 inches long and nearly 2 inches wide. Intensely colored, they stand out from a block away, and are showstopping in any setting. They are banked by huge, toothed leaves of sage-green that add muted color to the display, making the vibrant tones of the flowers pop out even more. Absolutely eye-popping -- and so easy to grow!

For best flowering, give Lofos™ full sun and plenty of water. You can expect it to reach up to 7 feet long and 18 to 24 inches wide, so don't hesitate to blanket that unsightly fence, drape that stone wall, or beautify those tired windowboxes with this beauty! Set of three 4-inch pots.
