Great color, east to grow, and you can run them up a trellis
I love the color they add to the garden. I also use them to create a shaded area by running them up a trellis so that as the plants grow they create shade that I can plant things that like less heat. A great addition to the garden and you can keep them out for a while in the fall.
Eat to grow but be sure to have plenty of space for your vines! A couple of mine are easily 20+ feet long and very heavy! Great little gourds though!
