Comments: Climbs to top of woodland trees, where it can get light. Disease and insect free makes it a good choice as a vine in the landscape. Butterlies and hummingbirds are attracted to it. Worthy of using on garden structures where its nice flowers and foliage can be enjoyed. May need to be groomed occasionally to keep growth in check.
