I love gardening, baking bread, and time with family/friends. I have almost 3 acres but most of it woods. I love my sunny spaces. I am in SC.

Thanks @kimguy @joy4todd @cyndi I have it growing on a simple green stake that I had to wrap several times. Next time I would have Scott build me a trellis.

@ofthought I almost did the same with what turned out to be purple loosestrife! Lol. Some times plants get lucky in spite of our efforts to "maintain" or control our gardens. 😉
