Silver Lace Vine - Knowledgebase Question

If I plant Silver Lace Vine by the end of June, how much growth can I expect this season? Also, since it's such a vigorous grower, is it an invasive plant? Will I have to worry about it suckering or running & appearing in places which are undesirable?

Silver Lace Vine (Polygonum aubertii) can grow vigorously enough to cover 100 square feet in a single season. In your gardening region it will be deciduous rather than evergreen, and you can cut it back to the ground in the spring, which will delay the bloom until August. (Generally the plant blooms late spring to autumn.) Because it's such a rapid grower, it can get out of control if not regularly maintained.
