This extremely common viney shrub grows everywhere, although, especially wild in parks and along the freeways here in San Diego, CA. Photo taken at Rolando Park, San Diego, CA. on Aug. 29, 2011.

We can grow this, but it needs some winter protection, here.

And I've grown P.capensis here too this year! Doubt that it'll set seed everywhere though........

Will you take yours in, Meanie...or will you wrap it up?

It'll have to come in Karen.

I don't have anywhere to overwinter plants indoors...otherwise I'd have a lot more exotics and the like...

Luckily, I can get away with wrapping things like this up, well - most of the time...
