These vines are incredibly beautiful. I have never had one grow successfully, one of my gardening pals from DG sent me one, but unfortunately it didnt survive...
I havent seen any in Turkey, I think it would be suited to this climate.

I planted this vine, commonly known as Snail Vine in California, to block out my neighbor's ugly yard... it grew faster than any plant I've ever dealt with. Science fiction movies must have been made about this plant. Within 6 months, this gorgeous vine grew 8 foot tall and 40 feet long, covering arbors so densely you couldn't see daylight! Fantastic!
