Flaming Orange!

This is my Flame Vine, Pyrostegia venusta blooming it's head off right now. I adore orange and love these flowers as do the hummingbirds. I'll never understand why the masses dislike orange. It's so cheerful! This is one of the first things I planted at our new house on a low chain link fence between our property and our neighbor's driveway. It is an uncommon plant that I had to special order. It's been in the ground about 1 1/2 yrs and has grown 10 feet on either side! Pyrostegia is native to Brasil and will grow to about 40 feet. I'll have to make sure it doesn't swallow the house.
