Heirloom Cypress Vine

This rare, heat-loving vine twines up effortlessly in an exquisite tracery of finely cut, feathery foliage. At midsummer, a profusion of dainty tubular flowers in shades of light pink, rose, white and scarlet open to five pointed stars. The charming rainbow of little blossoms attracts constant attention from hungry hummingbirds who find their nectar irresistible. Rediscover this gorgeous color range of true cypress vine, long a nostalgic favorite in the south.

TO START OUTDOORS

In spring once temperatures stay securely above 50° both day and night, plant seeds in a warm sunny location in ordinary garden soil 2 to 3 inches apart and 1/2 inch deep. Firm soil over seeds and keep evenly moist. Tend young seedlings carefully. They start slowly, but will climb quickly once well established.

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds indoors 4 or 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2 inch deep and keep warm and moist as seedlings emerge. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant only when weather has warmed and settled. Thin or transplant seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart when large enough to handle. Avoid disturbing roots when transplanting.

GROWING NOTES

Erect well-anchored supports at least 6 to 8 feet tall at planting time; strong netting, fence or trellis serve well to hold these delicate-looking but vigorous climbers. Twining cypress vines bloom at midsummer and perform best where summers are long and hot.
