Positive QueenB On Sep 27, 2004, QueenB from Shepherd, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

Very vigorous, fast climber, typical of I. purpurea. The flowers are beautiful and unusual, even if they don't last long. Well worth planting again.

OH This one is stunning!! The blooms are huge! tons of "feathery" petals and just very large overall. Vine is already up over 14 feet this season. Large "soft" solid heart shaped leaves.
