This is supposed to become a climber.

That's lovely, Herma - I've always wondered if those vines were worthwhile - please post a photo again when it's grown a bit more ;D
Retired - now full-time gardener - and loving it!

Apparently they can get huge, that's why I'm keeping it in a pot to contain it. Also very frost sensitive but I think it will be safe there. I've now got the hoyas and the bleeding heart and the flame lily climbing up the mulberry tree, I hope there's enough space for all of them!
I will keep you updated!

I bought one last year and repotted it when it became a little root bound and gave it a nice grid to climb on and it did climb a bit but it's never flowered again - I am very disappointed...

Janine, mine is not doing much either at the moment. I hope it will be happier in spring. I've read somewhere that it's a slow grower.

Janine, mine is still alive but it's not climbing or flowering, it just stands there. Very disappointing actually. Maybe they belong in humid tropical areas.

Or maybe it belongs in the ground and not in a pot!  I was warned that it becomes very large, so I put it in a pot to curb its ambition to take over the world.
