    Uses Notes: 

    Great for use in landscapes and containers.  If grown in a hanging basket it will climb the chains, which can look pretty cool.  Given something to climb on in landscapes and upright containers, it will do so, otherwise it will sprawl and potentially climb nearby plants.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Easy to care for.  No deadheading is necessary.
