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.

  • Not only do I love this plant, so does everyone else! The foliage is a lovely shade of green and the bi-color flowers can't be beat. I have this growing in full sun and even in the heat of the day, the foliage stands up to the temperatures of Minnesota. It climbed up my hanging basket trellis beautifully, this is one of the best vines in my garden. Many have asked what the vine is and I am happy to recommend it!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • I planted 4 of these in a container that has an obelisk in it and they are climbing up beautifully and they cascade down around the stand about 4 feet. They are simply gorgeous and thriving. I love this plant and will make it an annual addition to my garden!!!!!
