How to Grow Glory Vine

Eccremocarpus Germination Information

Eccremocarpus is the botanical name for Glory Vine
Dorotheanthus Seed Germination How to Sow Eccremocarpus:
  • Best sown indoors at 68-70° with NO cover as light aids in germination
  • Can also be sown outdoors in the spring after danger of frost is past
  • Seeds will germinate in 10-15 days
  • Outdoors, sow with barely any cover. Seeds will germinate in 15-20 days
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Eccremocarpus:
Transplanting: Transplant seedlings when there are at least two sets of true leaves. Site in full sun in any normal, loamy, moist, well-drained soil

Additional Care: Grown outdoors year-round only where hardy, otherwise grown as an annual in Zones north of Zone 9. For plants situated outdoors year-round, prune in early spring to keep them within bounds of the available space or structure. It becomes woody where hardy

A climbing vine from 10-15 feet that needs the support of a trellis or fence. The 1 inch, tubular flowers in vibrant colors of yellow, orange, scarlet, and red are borne in 4-6 inch long racemes all summer long. They are very attractive to hummingbirds. The light green, fine-textured foliage is pinnately compound from 2-3 inches long. Stems are sharply four angled
