This beauty is a compact grower with a spectacular show of long, orange-yellow throated tubular flowers in spring. Often reblooms lightly in summer. Because of its semi-vining habit, it is a great choice for courtyards and other smaller spaces. After the flowers are done, the showy, bright red berries are food for the songbirds.
