A frost-tender climber sometimes grown as an annual with lovely, deep wine-red, trumpet shaped flowers in summer. It can be grown in hanging basket, from which it will trail obligingly, or it looks equally good trained up a short obelisk. Grow in sun to part shade in a loam based compost in a pot, or in moisture retentive soil in the open ground. May not like very alkaline soil.

Previously placed in the family Scrophulariaceae, but recent genetics now place it in Plantaginaceae
