Question from Newbie

I have one of these vines growing on a cedar fence I built around my airconditioner to cut down on the noise when sitting on the patio. It is growing so well and blooms each day. My question; The vines are growing very fast, but I want the whole plant to thicken and cover the whole fence. Do I trim them to make them thicken or do I just have to redirect the vines? How this thing got started, I do not know, but what a blessing it is. I don't know how to post pics to this forum, but maybe someone will let me send them a pic and tell me exactly what I have.

Hey David!!!
If you want to send me your pick I will see if I can get it posted for you.... If you cut it back you won't have as many blooms.. But it will encourage it to branch out and you can start your cuttings for more plants..They are easy to start and normally don't take that long..

RE: Question from Newbie

Thank you Chena. This is the first time I have been back on the forum since I posted. I sent the pic to you. If you know what it is, great, but no need to post the pic on the forum. The local nursery has another variety, different from mine, I am going to purchase and plant it among these. Since my first post, these vines must have grown four feet and have more blossoms than ever before.
