Great for use in landscapes and containers. If grown in a hanging basket it will climb the chains, which can look pretty cool. Given something to climb on in landscapes and upright containers, it will do so, otherwise it will sprawl and potentially climb nearby plants.
These are heat tolerant plants, that aren’t particularly fussy. They need little routine maintenance. They will perform best if an application of controlled release fertilizer is included at the time of planting. This applies to both landscape and container plantings. The plants aren’t particularly heavy feeders, so a single dose is usually sufficient for landscape beds in most climates. If you have a very long season, a second application of controlled release plant food should be considered for landscape beds. In general, containers need to be fed more than landscape plants. A second application of a controlled release fertilizer should be applied about every two months to container plants. Do not luxuriously feed these plants as that can cause them to stop flowering.
