It kind of looks sickly in the winter in cold areas, but thrives in the summer with gorgeous red flowers and lush twining green leaves/vines. It grows very fast in the summer.

This is a very delicate plant, and very hard to take care of. I watered, and treated it, it exactly as Greg told me for about a month now, but it keeps getting worse :( I had this plant last year as well and it was doing better but the flowers would always fall off, and they still do now except they look more dead.
