Summer Sunshine Russian Vine Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in an average to dry, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Will adapt to most soil conditions. Because of its twining habit, a supporting structure is needed. In early spring, a hard pruning to about 60 cm can be done, or pruning the new shoots throughout the season will maintain its size and shape.
