An outstanding climbing vine with green foliage variegated with chartreuse or cream and beautiful, interesting flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds from spring until fall. The blooms are red with heart-shaped white sepals, creating the visual effect of "bleeding hearts". Though they are a tropical vine, they are often root-hardy in Houston if given a heavy mulching to protect the roots in winter. Bring potted plants indoors before a freeze.
