I'm pretty sure this is my P. triloba. I lost the tag. It's a large vine with big heart shaped leaves. Mine started out really nice then got kind of wimpy and yellowish. As the summer wore on it really began to take off and the foliage looked great but I didn't get many blooms. I think it must like high temps and lots of humidity. It wintered over well inside so I hope I get more blooms this summer.

I have mine in full sun, the hotter the better for that one. It doesn't get wilty and seems to thrive in high temps. I water it when the top of the soil dries out.

Angie I had to cut mine back to get it in the house last fall. The cuttings rooted well in water. Mine doesn't branch much either.
