I live in Seattle, Wa. I suspect I would grow this outside?? Some tender plants make it through the winter. I put newspaper down around the base, then I mulch about 3 inches. Even if it doesn't survive outside I can do cuttings and seeds. Sometimes, ( a lot lately) the sun is an issue. Any words of wisdom??

Got the plant from a nursery in Ohio about a month ago. It has grown fast and now has buds on it. Can't wait to see the blossoms as pictures are beautiful. I will try to propogate by cuttings and seeds if I get pods.

Hello, I recently planted one of these Hawaiian Bell vines and I must say it is quite a vigorous grower. . . So I'm pleased with the growth, however it has only bloomed one flower that lasted 1-2 days and hasn't bloomed since. Does it have a problem or is this normal? Also, I just noticed today some white bumps under some of the leaves...does anyone know what these are (a couple leaves have smaller black dots also). I also have a caterpillar resting within the vine.

Gorgeous vine even when not in bloom. Just got some cuttings from a friend. To the hummingbird poster in the forums trying to propagate her vine: look for aerial roots coming off the stem and include these in your cutting, plant in a pot, keep moist and out of the sun for a while to "baby it". Mine have done fine. Gradually introduce to sun after it has taken root and voila! Now you have 2 healthy plants. Sorry I couldnt reply in the forums. Dave wanted money (??)

I purchased a small specimen from Logee's, & within 2 months it was loaded with buds. It is unusual for them to blossom in January, but Logee's confirmed theirs were also in bloom. Edema may form on the undersides of the leaves, due to fluctuations in temperature or humidity, but will not harm the plant. Pruning will ensure a bushy compact form. Blossoms seem to last a day or two, & have a sharp scent - not at all sweet!
