Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral PLemon On Jun 5, 2013, PLemon from Warwick, MA wrote:

I planted my vines years ago. The male's pink & white markings were decorative but otherwise unspectacular. This spring another plant (variegated green & white--no pink), which seems to be a female, bloomed for the first time. It may have set fruits, but they're still too small to say anything further about.

As with birds (tho not for the same reason?!), the male of this 10-15'vine is the most colorful with leaves more vividly splashed with cream, pink & green (most true in a sunny spot & not generally on very young pls). Sun/Med
