A friend gave me 4 of these plants from her garden 3 years ago. I planted them in full sun. They die back in the winter and come back in the spring but have never bloomed or grown very large We live on a salt-water canal and i wonder if they are salt intolerant.

This Plant didnt do very well in full sun. I replanted it in semi-shade and it is growing quite nicely. I live in San Antonio, Tx, where it gets very hot, and dry, during summer.

I have been growing this plant for four years now. I have also started a couple more from stem cuttings. I have not been able to get it to flower. Does anyone have any tips? Thank-you! Rachele

I have been growing this vine from transplants. It is doing extremely well in a shady area of my garden and have been blooming continuously all year round. I've had only 2 transplants to start with and now, after 1 year, it's presently covering most of my fence.
