    First time planting these vines in the PNW. Late start and then cold fall arrived. Still growing strong, but slow. I expect continued growth throughout the temperate winter. Next spring will be the bounce .

    I was impressed both by the care that went into the packaging and the health of the plants. All three arrived healthy. I will most certainly consider Romance for future purchases.
