    Do we have coral vine in nz?

    It's a good plant for bees when usually nothing else is flowering.
    Cannot find it anywhere in nz yet though.

    They have tubers which grow every year in spring and usually flower from late spring till winter continuously. They can tolerate light frost also so they should be able to grow in nz.

    According to Naturewatch, 80% of exotic climbers are a threat to our ecosystem.
