Maurandella antirrhiniflora, Roving Sailor, is a rare plant in California, growing only in the Providence Mountains of eastern San Bernardino County. It will grow to only a height of about 2 feet if given support. The small medium-green leaves are shaped like a spear head (hastate) and are densely spaced on the vines. In late spring the roving sailor is covered with tubular flowers that range from lavender to red. Our population in the nursery has red flowers. The tubular flowers are reminiscent of those of the monkey flowers (Mimulus/Diplacus) to which the roving sailor is closely related. This vine seems to prefer some protection from the sun. Winter frost may be an issue so plant near a structure or overhanging plant. Maurandella antirrhiniflora, like most vines, is winter deciduous.
