At least one cultivar is locally grown and sold (by Xera Nursery). Both seem to come and go quickly from the local nurseries. I've never seen more than a dozen plants in one location before, so if you're entertaining the adoption don't hesitate too long, or you'll be waiting another year for yours.
So far it has enjoyed our morning sun location, sitting in rich, well-drained soil, and given regular water. It's predicted to quickly fill our little trellis and provide a nice background for our columnar apple and surrounding daylilies. It will attach itself to your trellis, no tying required. And it's hardy to approximately 0 degrees F. In order to ensure winter hardiness, bury it several inches deep at planting and mulch heavily in the fall. And of course, let me know how yours does!
