Hawaiian Sunset Vine (Stictocardia beraviensis)
I got a cutting of "Hawaiian Sunset Vine" (Stictocardia beraviensis) in a plant trade last autumn. I potted it up and have kept it outside since then every single day except the two nights of record cold in mid-February. Below are a couple of pics of the blooms it's making this week.
If you've grown it before in the warm-winter areas of AZ, please share your experiences good or bad. I've potted it into larger and larger pots since I got it and it's made good progress, though I wouldn't (yet!) call it a "vine", though everything I've read swears it's a house-eater, which sounds good to me.
I plan on planting it in the ground in sun with automatic irrigation, and then taking cuttings of it in early summer in case it doesn't survive the winter (or summer, LOL) but I'd love to hear from anyone who has grown it around here. I LOVE the colors and I really like how it hasn't been very annoyed with this year's cool winter.
In any case, take a look and enjoy the pics, and wish the plant good luck, LOL. We'll see how it does.
