Plant in shaded entryways, under covered patio and on protected fences and freestanding walls. This vine is also valued for training over wire topiary forms. Needs to be cut back occasionally to control spread and to encourage growth of attractive juvenile foliage.|

Prune semi-annually to control size.|
