|P. antioquiensis bears long-tubed, bright red occasionally pink flowers. Produces ellipsoid yellow fruit, to 4 inches long, with a delicate flavor.
This evergreen to semi-evergreen vine dies back to the ground in colder areas, but can remain if well mulched or planted in a sunny location that rarely, if ever, freezes. Prune out inner growth periodically to keep plant open and healthy. This hardy climber does so by tendrils and is a favorite food of caterpillars and fritillary butterfly. Wonderful over a trellis as a shade providing option or as a slope stabilizer, tropical selections can be grown as houseplants in a very bright window.
