Re: Hop vine

Chris: Can you tell me more about this plant, like growing conditions,
etc. Especially would want to know if any parts of it are poisonous to
small animals and/or children. It is a really cool looking plant and I
think I might be interested...if I knew more about it. TIA.

Hills, IA  zone 5
