How to plant Cup and Saucer Vine seeds

Cup and Saucer Vines are vigorous; reaching up to 20-25 feet in a season. The tender vines are native to Mexico, stay evergreen in frost-free climates, and can be grown as annuals anywhere else. Large bell-shaped flowers (the cups) sit daintily in prominent light green calyxes (the saucers). Grow Cup and Saucer vines on large trellises, fences and arbors, or let them ramble through trees and shrubs.
