Of course, there are plenty more trailing options than these (and that means more posts on this topic), but for now, here is a short post with several lovelies for you to consider. Enjoy!
1. Russelia equisetiformis
Russelia equisetiformis – Firecracker Plant (Figwort Family.) USDA Zones: 9 – 11. Weeping green fine textured leaveless stems make this an excellent for spilling over a wall. Clusters of scarlet tubular flowers (look like small firecrackers) provide reliable color spring through fall. Habit: Slender, rush-like stems start out erect, then fall over into long, showy cascades. Great for training on a trellis, accenting a border, or spilling out of a tall container. Semi-evergreen. Bloom: red + long bloom time. ‘Flamingo Park’ – has paler pink flowers. Size: 4-5′ h x 4-5’w. Exposure: Sun or shade. For best blooms, provide at least 4 hours sun. Growth rate: fast. Water: Medium.
