I grew this vine in San Francisco and it was spectacular and very easy to grow. It flowered constantly, rarely did it have no flowers. Once it was established, I never watered it. I think it got enough moisture from the fog in the summer. It was a very fast grower and got over 20 feet in length. My landlord's daughter would occasionally cut it back and one year she overdid it and killed it.

Now I have my own place in Richmond, CA and would love to find another one to plant here.

When this vine got about 5' up a support, the Gulf Gulf Frittery
butterflies took over. It is a host plant and their caterpillars ate the entire vine and almost killed it. In our area it needs to be protected from from butterflies until it is very well-established, at which time it will recover from being stripped.

Gorgeous vine. Started from a seedling and looks amazing after 9 months in the ground. Needed very little care.
