Post #8417279

Is the re anyone out there, in a southern desert who has planted V Creeper. I am in Sonora, Mexico. I want to plant it on a fence for security to keep people from seeing in to the property. I do not see a lot of it here, but where it is it looks lovely.
It's hard to imagine it getting away too far, in the heat here. Right now we are having 35-37 degree days. March 9, 2011.
They do not get much rain in Sonora until July August September.

I would have to keep it away from trees, of course.

Has anyone had experience in the desert, like this? If it is not watered for say two weeks, would it be seriously hampered from growing at all. If is was a problem, would leaving it unwatered help to keep it in check?

Thanks for any help you can give.
