Its propagation happens through cutting (Cuttings: Take a 10 cm pointer and stick it in a substrate or in thick sand and in a few days, you will have a new seedling).

It is rustic, does not require rich soil or frequent watering (only in the dry season). You can plant it in pots.

To plant, choose 1 meter seedlings and drive as a vine (in fact, it is a shrub and not a vine, so it needs to be driven, attaching its branches and then directing its branches as you wish).

Wet the seedling every other day for 2 months and go! It grows well and to be beautiful it must always be pruned after flowering: twice a year to clean dead branches, and once to contain it (in winter). After pruning, fertilize with earthworms.

Flowering vines for smaller areas – Japanese lantern

A delicate plant with beautiful flowers in the shape of bells and Japanese lanterns. Its branches reach 3 meters and it is also a shrub, so it needs to be guided by moorings (moorings) on trusses, arches or walls.
