Though the Silver Lace Vine blooms best in full sun it will tolerate partial shade. Silver Lace Vine is not fussy about soil, though a moderately fertile sandy loam is best. It is drought tolerant and has no serious pests. It may die back in winter in colder zones, and dead growth should be removed in spring. Where die back does not occur the vine may be pruned back fairly hard in fall or winter and will then bloom profusely on new wood. Propagate by division stem cuttings or from seed.
