After reading more about this plant ... as Beautiful as it is, I think I've totally changed my mind about growing it.

It's not invasive here in my Zone 5a garden, but I can see where it would be in warmer zones. If it should ever spread beyond our gardens and around our neighborhood, I would certainly stop growing it. I do welcome the volunteer plants, not only as gifts to friends, but as replacements for dead vines in our gardens. Typically, the life span of a vine here is five or six years.
