Wow. Does it die down in the winter ?
Is it growing next door from seeds, or from the roots spreading ?
How tall is it ? Does it need support ?
So many questions. .... Lol

...... and Eileen likes it TWICE :o)

Terra it is growing from roots spreading, it does die right down in winter and looks absoloutely dead, I planted it as a seedling up a cane against the fence, it has now scrambled through other plants and is now climbing through my conifers, it has self clinging tendrils but neds dupport until it gets going, The book says it can grow 20 - 30 ft perhaps thats why its climbing through everything. I will see if I can dig up some root for you if you would like it!

Hi Carole - ".......and is now climbing through my conifers.....". That's very handy to know as I have one token conifer in my garden that's just standing there. This could just be the very thing to cheery it up a bit! I like this plant.
