Queen’s Wreath

Antigonon leptopus

Queen’s Wreath, also known as coral vine, is a fast-growing and heat-tolerant vine that can add beauty and ecological value to an Arizona pollinator garden. This plant produces vibrant, coral-pink (sometimes red, and rarely white) flowers that are attractive to a variety of native bees, including bumblebees, honey bees, and solitary bees.

Queen’s Wreath is also a larval host plant for the silver-spotted skipper butterfly, making it a valuable addition for supporting local ecosystems. By planting Queen’s Wreath in a pollinator garden, gardeners can provide both nectar and habitat for native bees and support the growth and survival of the silver-spotted skipper butterfly.
