If this plant is too invasive on the fence why not put it on a lawn trellas to contain it?

Bought this at the local Home Depot. Planted it on the North side of the Garage (in a walkway between the house and Garage). Trained it up some twine to the roof level. Once there, laid some 2X3's across the two roofs and let them splay across. I now have a nice shady walkway where once the sun had roasted my stucco wall in the summer.
Aside from saving me air conditioning costs, the flowers are beautiful (in an Alien sort of way) and have a pleasant "fabric softener" type aroma when blooming. Once established, they grow easily with intermittent watering. The Vines are aggressive and require disciplined pruning.

Beautiful Flower with nice fragrance. This plant is in a large pot here. It likes full sun with its roots in the shade. It gets protection here in the winter. I haven't tried it in the ground yet but will experiment this winter. It gets huge in a pot and will grow in every direction. It has thick strong tendrils and thick oval leaves. One of my favorite passies.

I got a cutting from a friend. Planted it on the West side right outside our kitchen about the end of winter. This spring it sprung! It bloomed the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. Lime green outer petals with purple "hairy" centers. It is now sporting "fruit" or big seed pods. I'm trying to figure out if they are edible or poisonous. It's quite healthy since it is under our patio cover. It does get a hot afternoon sun for about 2 hours. Hope I can vine along the patio cover. If I can figure out how to attach my pictures here I'll do it.
