Drymonia coccinea

Photo and text by Bob Stewart

This is an easy grower, vining but short, which prefers good light to bloom. D. coccinea is one of the relatively few gesneriads with interesting bracts. The bracts are large and red, the flowers are yellow.  I recommend it if you want a vine and have good light.
