Grew this vine for the first time this year. Beautiful flowers that open before sunset. This plant grew far taller than the stated 15 feet! It climbed 3 stories, almost to the roof! As the vine grew, it produced flushes of flowers as the lower flowers were pollinated. It produced a ton of seeds for me and I expect it will probably reseed readily. And don't be fooled by the "thorns." They are rubbery and harmless.
