This is one of the most vigorously growing vines I have ever encountered and I eventually had to get rid of it. In the rainy season/hot summer months in Florida it was growing as much as 3 ft a day and was threatening to take over the world. If you can contain it, it is well worth having since the flowers are beautiful.
