Purchased as a band plant from Vintage, Fall 2011. As of Oct 2012, my plant has two six foot tall canes with several laterals. Little bloom so far, but it's still young. No disease problems, only a small amount of damage from the chilli thrips invasion this past summer.
June 2013- Plant has become very large and has bloomed better. Canes are not especially flexible. I couldn't imagine wrapping this around anything.
