Description A vine which should be much more commonly cultivated! This plant is small for a vine, rarely reaching more then about 5 feet, but in the summer numerous silvery blooms, tinged with purple appear. In Arizona this species will only be commonly encountered in the Santa Catalina and Rincon mountains, however it can be cultivated in warm areas throughout the state. Given its tendency to grow on rocky slopes and utcrops, give this plant ample drainage when using as a landscape species. Consider planting under small, open trees like Kidneywood and Desert Willow, or grow as a mounding ground cover between shrubs.
