    Design IdeasThis is the consummate night-garden vine, with its big, white trumpet flowers. Grow it upon awnings over windows or around doorways. Train along side-yard fences for a lovely view and allow it to climb over gateways for a framed entry. Perfect in courtyards and sheltered condominium yards, where there's little room for bushier plants. Ideal for training onto railings on stairways or balconies. Performs well in containers.

    Provide loamy, moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish extensive root system; once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Avoid excess water during winter months. Fertilize during growing season. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size.Pruning time: early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
