Hardiness: Half-Hardy Annual.
Vine is extremely fast-growing and always has at least 20 blossoms all the time. The heat of our summers does not slow this one down. The 4-inch holly-shaped fuzzy leaves are a pretty light lime green. This fast-growing vine can reach over 3m in season. Requirements are the sun to part shade and do not like to have its roots standing in water but do not let dry out completely.
Sowing: Sow indoors in late winter-late spring. Best to sow early in the year. Surface sow, finely, onto moist well-drained seed compost. It needs light to germinate. Propagate. Ideal temp. over 16- 20°C. Germination takes 15-30 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle trays with 5cm spacing.
