If the common name conjures images of an aboriginal war cry for you, then it fits the plant well. Basically, it is one of those vines whose goal seems to be to conquer the universe. Balancing its excessive vigor, however, is the wonderfully lush, purple tinged foliage and, in spring, masses of small trumpets, cream-colored with salmon markings in this selection. Sun or light shade near the coast, part shade in hot summer areas, rich soils, moderate to regular watering. Hardy to 20-25 degrees F.
