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.

  • I have this against my fence in part shade / sun, afternoon sun. The leaves welts in the afternoon. And I haven't had a bloom since may. Going to move it to where it gets morning sun and see if it likes it better.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.

  • I planted this to take over a lamppost when my Clematis finished. They grew 6' tall and full but never bloomed. Does this prefer lean soil? I fertilized the Clematis and annuals with 20-20-20 monthly and it is irrigated as needed. Dissappointed!

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
