We grow it in outdoor containers in the summer here in WI, and call it alternatively iboza or "stinky vine."

For us, grows very well in containers -- no pests, no disease.

I planted this plant early April - and it has passed some cold nights. It is growing wild and it is seen beautifully under a blue spruce tree. I can hardly wait to see the flowers next year - I'm hoping. I'm just wondering if I must cover this perennial with leaves in the fall so they will make it pass our severe cold weather here in MB.
