I thought I had killed this plant! I received it late in the summer last year, it looked all dried up and dead. I put it in a corner of my yard and SEVERELY neglected it all fall and winter.
Then earlier this spring, I noticed little leaf buds! I repotted it, watered it, put it in a better spot it was in, and it took off.

Now I know this is what grape vines do, they die down every year, but honestly I’m suprised it survived the neglect. Very glad I picked this native species for my yard.
