Comments: This is a perennial vine that is sometimes used as a ground cover and often in hanging baskets. Light freezes will injure foliage, but new growth returns in early spring. Plants may need to be groomed periodically by cutting back old growth and allowing new growth to replace the browning foliage. Provide sunlight and a well drained soil for best growth, but this plant can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions.
