If your goal is to provide food for wildlife and maybe a little beauty,
plant this vine now!

SOIL: performs great in the poorest of soils
WATER: once established, yawns at drought
LIGHT: full sun
SIZE: give this baby lots of room

This vine attracts scores of both pollen and nectar eaters, so you'll see plenty of bees and butterflies, but also every damn wasp species in your area, even ones that shouldn't be visiting flowers, from tiny parasitic ones to enormous spider and cicada hunters. During hot, sunny days, the sprays of flowers are teeming with insects, and their predators, of course. And no, nothing will bite you, stupid wuss.
Coral Vine (Antigonon leptopus)

Bees, Wasps and Ants (Order Hymenoptera)
