I have the mezoo and find it difficult to get them here in the Thousand Island region of NY. They do so well in the summer. BEAUTIFUL plant. Now I know how to save them for the following seasons. Thank you so much for the info!

This is my favorite trailing plant for my containers. I bought it 2 years ago and threw it in a few containers to over winter in my small house(St Louis, MO), & it did great. I put back out in spring & will bring in & do the same now (Oct). Very easy to propagate. You'll have plenty to share.
LOVE this plant!

I noticed this plant for the first time this spring at my local garden center. I was looking for a vine that was varigated and would grow in part sun. Mezoo fit the bill and had pretty little flowers to boot. I asked the gentleman who takes care of the plants what he knew about it. He said he grew it at home and had many good things to say about it. I purchased it. I have it in a whiskey barrel with some Elephant Ears receiving part sun and it is florishing. I am going to try propagating it and bringing it indoors for a houseplant. LOVE IT!!!!!
