Kennedia coccinea – Coral Vine

A vigorous twining vine that can be used as a climber or groundcover, with brightly coloured flowers in spring, in colours of pink, orange, and yellow-green. Prefers a well drained soil, sun to light shade. Can take light frost, heavier frost will damage the foliage, but the plant will put out fresh growth in spring. Can be used as an eye catching container plant, where the growth can spill over the sides.
