Oh Bill - sounds like the troubles I have had with passionflower! It's a bit like the poppy seed, it keep coming up everywhere and has grown a mile-a-minute before you notice it is there.
I want to grow my bignonia in a very exposed position at the top of my vertical garden (built onto the rocky side of the valley in the Languedoc). For every five plants I plant I consider myself lucky if just one survives, so I've learned over the years that it is better to grow them myself from seed or cuttings. Garden Centre plants rarely survive.
It's an enjoyable challenge.
