Could these beautiful plants be grown as a potted annual in zone 5?
Richo Cech –
Yes, i think that would be the best way to grow it in a z 5. the advantage of “multiflora” over “jalapa” for potted culture, is that it stays small, trails, and blooms close to the pot. jalapa would have to get really tall before they would flower, and that’s not as conducive to potted culture. r
