Special Attributes

An easy-to-grow, fast growing and floriferous North American native vine that quickly climbs and covers chain link fences from top to bottom, and arches arbors and other structures, the Jekyll Orange Crossvine produces LOADS of fragrant, bright orange trumpet-shaped flowers in spring reblooming again in late summer and fall in our central Georgia gardens. Some years it seems to bloom spring to frost! The flowers of Jekyll might be a little brighter orange than Tangerine Beauty and they're shaped a little differently as well. Other than that it is hard to tell the difference between the two varieties. The dense foliage consisting of attractive, oblong leaves remain evergreen in the deep South turning to reddish-purple in fall, with subsequent leaf drop in the northern regions where it will grow.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing up to 30 feet in height or length (however tall or long the support structure) and 4 feet or more in width, the Jekyll Orange Crossvine is ideal for use to climb on and cover fences (from top to bottom!), or to cover a trellis, arch, arbor, pergola or any other structure that might benefit from or support the flowering vine. Rather than grow along just the top of a fence, the vines cascade all the way down to the ground to entirely cover the fence. A fine addition to hummingbird and butterfly gardens, tropical look gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 6 feet apart to cover fences




Cultural Preferences

The Jekyll Orange Crossvine is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average to low fertility. It grows in full sun or shade, however blooms heavier with more sun. We suggest at least 5 hours of direct sunlight for full flowering. Plants are quite drought tolerant when established. Pruning isn't necessary, however vines can be pruned after flowering to keep tidy.
