The astonishing colors of Miss Manila have no comparison. Even though they have the characteristic white tiny flowers, their bracts go from a bright deep orange then fade to varying tones of mauve and pink. This climber blossoms all around the year, and their smooth-textured foliage is evergreen. This tropical plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds. Therefore, it’s a great plant to have in your landscape. This tender perennial plant likes full sun exposure and needs to be watered regularly, but do not overwater them.
