Comments: This tender bulb produces vining type growth. It climbs by tendrils on the tips of its leaves. In areas where it is not hardy, the bulbs should be dug when foliage dies down in fall and stored in peat moss and kept from freezing. It grows and flowers best where the day temperature are 70 to 80 degrees and the night temperature is 10 degrees F lower.
