Gardeners' Notes:

Positive jv123 On May 19, 2014, jv123 from Vancouver, WA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Grows amazingly fast in the spring just before the flush of fragrant white flowers, and continues to grow at a slightly slower pace the rest of the year. The flowers smell great but don't last too long, unfortunately. The leaves are thick and leathery, providing much needed green color when most other vines except ivy have gone dormant. It twines instead of clings, so I don't mind it growing on a trellis against my house. So far it has grown over 6 feet (probably much more) since the beginning of March.
