If you love growing vines, then this is the ideal vine for growing on trellises, arbors or fences. It even can be trained to climb up a string tied to a tree branch or the eaves of your house, but any way you grow Ipomoea quamoclit it requires some training and the ideas are endless. The hummingbirds absolutely love it, butterflies fawn over it and bumble bees help pollinate it! While the flowers are pretty, the vine is very invasive and fast growing. It tends to cover and choke out all the plants near it.
