For the rest of the year, expect the hardy Lipstick Vine to freshen up any space with its abundant green foliage. 

An easy plant to take care of, which can also handle less brightly lit areas.

Styling Tip: Let your plant trail within a hanger, or place on a surface with ample room to let the stems come to their full presence.
