Flaming Glorybower (Clerodendrum splendens) (December 4, 2004)
Flaming glorybower is a woody or semi-woody evergreen vine or running shrub to 12 feet (3.7 m) long, that climbs by twining. The flowers are brilliant red, sometimes yellow or white. The terminal panicles are about 4 inches across. After the corollas fall, the calyxes become purplish-pink or red.
Flaming glorybower, like many of the Clerodendrums, is native to western Africa.
