Butterfly-shaped seeds. Repeat bloomer, attractive bright yellow. Evergreen vine that will easily train itself to a trellis or fence. If left unsupported, this plant will twine on itself to produce a mounding shrub or even a groundcover. This is fairly drought tolerant shrub, but looks much better with regular watering through the warm season.

grows well in Houston heat & humidity, making a huge mound of vine over the top of a 7 foot fence. dried seed pods are attractive & useful in floral arrangements. seeds are much sought after.

Although this vine was slow to grow in our soil alkaline, it has now become a problem to control. I have a full time job trying to keep this vine from taking over my yard.
