Commonly known as the Cypress vine, this species of Ipomoea is native to Central America and Mexico. Ipomoea pennata is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of all annual vines. The feathery foliage with thin, thread-like leaves give the plant a light, airy texture. In summer the plants burst into flower and are covered with hundreds of scarlet red, star shaped flowers. The flowers are an excellent source of nectar, they are attractive to butterflies and in hotter areas, are a favorite of hummingbirds. Annual in cooler climates. Container suitable.
