Gardeners' Notes:

I have this vine interplanted with several other vines so I have not noticed any sparseness in its coverage. The beautiful white flowers which come dependably every year are a treat! I've not had any problem with yellowing of leaves or nutrient deficiencies. My plant grows in a mostly shaded location with no pampering. It comes through winters with temperatures as low as 28 F with no problems.

I noticed on someone else's response that this vine doesn't have a thick coverage. I'd felt mine was exptradonary since it doesn't....but am still worried that it has yellow leaves a lot. I'm using Miracle Grow on it.....and well as a general granulated fertilizer periodically. When the leaves turn yellow I use an Iron additive in a watering can-full. Water weekly..but it is in clay soil. Should I plant another vine with it for coverage? Or, perhaps, two of the same?
I don't feel it's a great sucess....but maybe that's how they are!!!
