A quick-growing climber that makes an enchanting lacy curtain with its bipinnate leaves, tiny curling tendrils, and continual clusters of 1" yellowy-orange tubular blooms. Hummingbirds love the blooms. Grow this close to your house so you can watch them, and follow the flowers as they form, open, and then produce interesting pudgy seed pods. This is wonderful for screening or shading a porch.
