What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful
What are the cons? Long ripening time
This was a fun plant to grow. I knew they needed to be started very early but i don’t think late February was early enough for my Indianapolis area garden. Several of them struggled after they were transplanted in the ground since they were grown in the same container. They bounced back soon enough and grew beautiful, bushy vines along my fence. They had a very unpleasant smell when you rubbed or brushed up against the leaves. The flowers were beautiful and loved by wasps and ants. Finally fruit appeared but only one usable sponge ripened before frost. I’m growing them again next year and will start them much earlier
