Gardeners' Notes:

Positive QueenB On Aug 19, 2006, QueenB from Shepherd, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is a dwarf type that produces a small version of larger vines. They have smaller leaves and smaller flowers, and do well grown in large containers with a small trellis. They also do well in hanging baskets.

Flowers come in single and double forms on the same vine. The double flowers are sterile since the stamens are converted to petals, but the single flowers will produce pods and seed.
