Comments: A white blanket of fragrant, star-shaped flowers cover this vine in late summer. This is a vigorously growing vine that can become a pest, but lends itself to good pruning practices. Easy to grow can grow out of bounds quickly. In its native habitat, generally grows over shrubs, small trees, and volunteer vegetation. Must have some sunlight to bloom well. No major plant pests on this native vine.
