Antigonon leptopus

Mexican Creeper, coral vine or San Miguelito Vine is native to Mexico. It is a vine with pink or white flowers (Antigonon leptopus 'alba' ).This is among my favourite flower. The bright pink flower is very attractive. Usually i grow fragrant flower but i made an exception for this creeper.  Stingless bees love its nectar and i love its uniqueness for this is the only flower where the flower bud appear at the tendrils.

Since i planned to keep a few beehives there is one more reason for me to grow this unique pink creepers.



  1. Oh dear, I'm so jealous looking at your blooming antigonon. Mine, failed. My mistake putting them under the shade, Supposed she need a lot of full sun. I just removed her outside. Waiting for any progress.

  2. Thanks for stopping by. Antigonan is a weed , it loves sun and occasional water.

  3. Hi interested to plant this creeper..can u describe how to do that? Thanks..
