Planted both the 'Roseum' & 'Moonlight' about 13 years ago. The Roseum is growning on a retaining wall and has many lovely blooms this year. It receives 2 or 3 hours of filtered sun & has good ground - never dries out.

The 'Moonlight' is growing up a tree, does not have many blooms, ground occasionally gets dry.

Both vines have deep green color, prettily shaped leaves They add texture and interest to the surfaces on which they grow. The flowers are truely a plus.
