Whitevine (Sarcostemma clausum).

Anyone have experience with this vine? I am able to attract Monarchs with tropical milkweeds, but Queen butterflies don't seem to like it very much. I have heard that the whitevine is their favorite in Central and South Florida. I have also heard that this vine can be somewhat invasive.

Any information would be appreciated.

I'm not sure. I don't have this plant. Below is a link to Google Images - maybe some of those photos will help?
