Interesting Facts

Flowers are shaped like little wine goblets, hence the plant's common name.  A variation with white flowers exists.  Once established, Winecups may be used as a kind of groundcover, especially in areas with well-drained soil.  Will trail nicely when planted in a tall or hanging pot or near an edge.  Foliage remains green throughout the year, although it may slip into dormancy during the hottest part of the summer.
