I have two black bamboo plants growing. I planted passion flowers inbetween them. The passion flowers have really taken off like wildfire, they are intertwining with the bamboo. The flowers are really nice and the folage is now spreading to my neighbours wall. This is great as the wall is ugly and the passion flowers are starting to cover it. Q1:Will the passion flowers kill my black bamboo caused by the intertwining? Q2: Does the passion flower die off in winter to nothing or does it continue to grow?

Cheers & kindest regards


PS: I've done a before and after photo.

the passionflower will drop its leaves in winter. the bamboo's should be ok too.

Thankyou, I'll just keep them both in trim. I've never seen anything grow so fast.
