hight: indeterminate
sun exposure: the plants from the pictures I posted were in full sun
spacing: based on the groth of this plant i would say 4-5 feet would be close enough

i feel this plant would make a good shade plant when planted on a fence or trellis. some trianing would be needed to keep it growning where you needed it. the plant pictured was not planted. It was a plant that just came up. where the seed came from we have no idea so it may self seed readly, we will know more about this in the spring
