Asarina scandens. This delicate-looking little vine scrambles up to 8 feet in one season, cloaked in arrowhead-shaped leaves and cascading, 1½-inch long, tubular flowers from summer to fall. Climbing Snapdragon Vine prefers full sun and moist, well-draining soil. Direct-sow after all danger of frost has passed, just barely covering the seeds with soil, or sow seeds indoors 10-12 weeks earlier. To avoid root disturbance and tangled vines, sow seeds in individual pots. Cover seeds with just a fine layer of sand or vermiculite and then cover with clear plastic wrap. Uncover when seedlings appear in 1 to 2 weeks and thin to the strongest 1-2 seedlings per pot. Harden off the seedlings by slowly introducing them to the outdoors over the span of a week, and then plant them out 12" apart. Summer flowering. Height: 8-10'.
