I planted this vine on a 5' fence by the driveway where it gets part sun. It has grown about 6 or 7 feet at this point but I honestly cannot believe how long it blooms for! It was at least end of November since I saw the last few resilient blooms. The color is spectacular. I'm looking forward to this coming season and hoping for a little more length! :-)

Bought two small plants in March 09 and put them into an east-facing window of our porch, so they got a bit cold at night. But they thrived there, and have taken off once planted outdoors in May. I'm loving this one.
