Chilean glory flower (Eccremocarpus scaber)
Genus:  Eccremocarpus
This fast-growing, evergreen climber has sharply 4-angled stems and red-orange tubular flowers tipped with yellow that are borne in clusters 4 to 6 inches long. Chilean glory flower blooms from late spring to autumn. Light green leaves are small, ovate, and boldly veined.
Care:  Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Do not overwater. Where not hardy, grow in a cool greenhouse or as annuals. Outdoors, train over a pergola or house wall, or let it climb up a large shrub or small tree.
Propagation:  Sow seed in late winter or spring. Root tip cuttings in spring or summer.
Problems:  Prone to spider mites and whiteflies under glass.
