Gardeners' Notes:

Positive psychloman On Sep 3, 2004, psychloman from Brooklyn, NY (Zone 7a) wrote:

I have had this plant growing up a wall for about five years now and this year it finally bloomed. The leaves are elegant and the vine climbs demurely and slowly; it is not at all invasive. All in all it makes a nice, dense covering for any wall you might have. I grow it in full sun.

Neutral Terry On Aug 2, 2001, Terry from Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) wrote:

A beautiful native vine, it often is found climbing up deciduous trees or sprawling on the ground, although it must grow vertically to flower.

Ultimate height is 20-30 feet, although some vines have reached 40 feet.
