Did you have the sp.? Mine ( diversifolia ssp el-nidicus ) has been very well behaved. It grows, but not to the point where I have problems....say like the carnosas' which are all over the tree's right now and have withstood temps into the upper 20's. I'm actually not complaining as I love them so much, but I would be thrilled if I could leave this one out to climb. One more that I could leave out in cooler/cold temps. I'm just enough farther north than you that I have my doubts about it being tolerant of our cooler winter temps We almost always have a frost/freeze here. It has formed pendicules in just about 14 months from a cutting and they have buds now, which makes me think it may be a short day plant. Even with all the rain we've gotten and lower night time temps they are staying green and plump. So moisture/cooler temps doesn't seem to cause a problem so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. I think where you are I'd just let it climb the tree and enjoy.
