I've had this plant for two years, and while it was slow to get going, it's really taken off this year, climbing up a tree and from one end of my back fence to the other. It's never touched by butterfly larva, or any other pests are far as I can tell. The only minus is that the flowers are short lived, usually closing up by 2pm unless it's cloudy.
