Tips from Fran
I love this plant. I have grown it in deep moist shade. It can get hilly and make very unique shapes. I have also grown it in full sun with little water. It grew completely flat. I now have it at the foot of a retaining wall in dry shade, which has shade in the morning and full sun in the afternoon. Not only is it surviving , it is climbing the wall! What a cool plant.
