Palmate foliage is pretty and not as delicate as it looks, climbing vigorously once established and scrambling up a support or tree. Tendrils wrap around supports but are not heavy enough or tenacious enough to cause damage. I grew some in a hanging pot under a deciduous tree and they seem to co-exist nicely. The example in the ground has grown taller and more vigorously than the potted one and with larger leaves, even though direct sown much later. The flowers are nondescript but the colorful fruits are very attractive and so is the foliage. They have done equally well in mostly shade and half-day shade. Fruit is not edible.
