Flame vines grow in full sun to partial shade, though they bloom more heavily with more sun.
This is a fast growing vigorous vine, it will cover a long fence in a hurry - or anything else for that matter. Give it plenty of room because it can (and will) climb over anything in its path - shrubs, trees, the house, you name it. These vines have been known to completely cover and eventually strangle trees, so use good judgment in planning for mature size.
"Right plant - right place" is the key to enjoying this beautiful vine for years to come. And the upside of its growth rate is fast coverage...and less plants to buy for a fence full of flowers.
