Delightful, dainty little climber that is fast-growing to 10 ft.
The vine is generally grown as an annual. It has tiny white flowers followed by 1.5” across seed pods that look like little green puffs. These pods contain black seeds and each is marked with a heart shaped spot where it attaches, hence the common name. Needs a trellis or support. Easy to collect the seeds after the pods become dry and papery and turn brown. Self-sows.
