It is growing in southwest Florida currently, but came from a seed from Australia. This is it's second year of growth and is currently covering a 10 foot section of fence, and it seems to be pretty aggressive unless I keep constantly chopping it back. I am going to try cuttings in the spring. This is the first time it has bloomed. I did initially think it was mucuna---but I internet search didn't prove to be a success. Thanks, JRsbugs!!
