When I looked it up just now, I found it comes in lots of colors. Supposed to be easy from seed; haven't grown it myself.
It grows extremely easy from seed and very quickly. Mine covered a whole wall in my garden, 6 ft and still grew so I had to hack it back. In fact I got so tired of it that I got rid of it but I do miss it now, esp since no one else is growing it around here, and it was pretty. I just never liked orange flowers LOL.I've seen them in white and cream also.
