Comments: This is a fast-growing evergreen vine that could be used more as an ornamental vine on garden structures. It flowers over an extended period from spring until the first frost. Growth may have to be checked to keep the vine trained to a particular structure because it will grow out of bound and over adjacent plants without some control. It grows well on chainlink fences where the thin stems can be threaded among the links of the fence.
