Just received nice potted plant from Grassy Knoll Exotic Plants in Oregon, http://www.gkexoticplants.com

Plan to grow in a pot in Delaware and bring inside to overwinter.

Not a lot of info, on their site, but they say full sun, all-purpose fertilizer, plant can be pruned to small shrub or will form stout vine.
