I love this evergreen butterfly host plant!! It is hardy and easy to train for trellis purpose. It can get out of hand by spreading underneath the ground with roots. However that is when I simply dig and share.

I picked up this vine in a box at Sam's Club believe it or not. It was about 5 inches long and looked pitiful but it was the only place I could find it. I purchased and planted it sometime around Mardi Gras (March?) 4 months down the road its about 8 feet high and flowering. The most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Very easy to take care of, just make sure you have plenty of room for it.
