WHEN TO SET OUTSIDE
After all danger of frost has passed.
PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Asarina's sage green arrowhead-shaped foliage and cherry-red flowers are beautiful cascading from containers and baskets on the patio–close enough for you to observe all the butterflies, bees and hummingbirds that visit the trumpet-shaped blooms. This robust twining vine is easy-care too, for it sheds the spent flowers, no deadheading needed. Provide a trellis with small diameter canes for the delicate looking but wiry stems to twine around, and in warm summer weather it will climb quickly and bloom abundantly.
Keep evenly moist—at least 1" of water per week, more during particularly dry and hot spells, but avoid saturated soils.
Mix in an inch of compost or an organic balanced fertilizer when planting and continue monthly applications.
