This perennial is a vigorous grower and can cover a large area of fencing in one year. It is tender but will withstand temperatures around 0 degrees C. A heavy frost will kill it, but it recovers from a slight frost. The flower goes through four colours before falling off and leaving a calyx pod, seen in this photograph, within which the seed pod grows, until it is the size of a large plum.
