A feeling that I know well!

Yes, there's only limited room. I think I'd rather have the Hawaiian Sunset vine (Stictocardia beraviensis) on the top of my shade structure. I've read it can grow to 50ft/16m in less than a year.

Stictocardia beraviensis deserves a place in everyones collection!!

I agree with you 100%!!! The flower of Stictocardia beraviensis has so many colors: red, orange, yellow, pink.
