"Silver Lace Vine" tolerates most soil types and drought
quite well. This vigorous vine grows extremely well in poor soils.
Fallopia aubertii will require a strong support structure.
Reaching heights of over 20 foot Silver Lace Vine produces
small fragrant white flowers during late summer. Due to its
vigorous growth habit it is an excellent choice for quickly
covering fences, arbors, and large trellises.
Silver Lace Vine is marginally hardy in zone 4 so it is best
grown at elevations less than 5,000 feet.
