I've grown this for two years now, the first year they were out of controle beautiful. I also ended up with a little pink surprise (a pink flowering vine mixed in with the purples). The second year, I think the Japanese beetles figured out where I was growing it because the leaves were getting pretty thoroughly munched. It still grew well and flowered, but it didn't look as appealing.

Owner Response: Hi Heather! Japanese beetles can sure be challenging, but there is a successful organic solution called Milky Spore. It is applied to the soil and eliminated the beetles in the grub stage. The pest control will ensure plants have enough leaves to be healthy and bloom prolifically for you again. Happy Gardening!
