Alexandramou:

I'm not sure if it's easy from seed. Most people just buy them at the nurseries or take cuttings. Cuttings are extremely easy to propagate from this vine.

Meanie:

You have lots of land to plant one. This vine can grow to more than 200ft/62m. There's one close to downtown San Diego, in a private garden which has taken over the whole garden plus the neighbor's yard. It's incredible!

But maybe not the climate!!

You can grow it as an annual.

Good luck, if you happen to get some seeds.

I've never seen seeds pods on this vine. I'll have to check.
If I do get seeds you and Alex will be on the list. :>)
