Tangerine Beauty crossvine will thrive with virtually no supplemental water, although regular watering will help it look its best in hot, dry areas. Water weekly during their first year or two in the garden, watering until the top 6 to 15 inches of soil are saturated. Established Tangerine Beauty crossvines require virtually no water, although they should be watered during prolonged dry spells or if the soil dries out completely in the top 3 inches, providing roughly 1 inch of water at each watering. A 1- to 2-inch layer of mulch around the base of the vine will decrease its water needs during summer and help protect its roots.
