Hardy to about -20°c[9]. Although the plant is hardy, it grows better on a sunny wall[7]. A fast-growing plant, climbing by means of tendrils[8]. It grows well on fences etc and can be used as a screen over unsightly objects, though it dies back to the roots each winter[10]. The young shoots require protection (the report does not specify from what)[9].

Dioecious. Male and female plants must be grown if fruit and seed is required.
