@gjones Totally worth it for the hummingbirds. This vine can handle our long northern winters. #juneblooms

@gjones Estimates vary, but 10-20 feet seems about right for USDA Zone 5a.

@gjones Last year this vine bloomed at the top of my neighbor’s dying lilac. I was able to save the vine without transplanting it, and as a bonus, it now blooms on a trellis on my side of the fence, within easy reach 📷 #juneblooms #bestofjune

@gjones My vine has a main stem and one long branch, but I’m not sure how typical that is. Vendors describe ‘Dropmore Scarlet’ as 2-3 feet wide, non-invasive, multi-stemmed, and good for training on an arbor or trellis.
