    Our friend has purchased a Porcelain Vine for us. We have not received it yet, but I have heard/read somewhere that they can be quite invasive?
    If so, are you better to have it in a contined bed/area?
    If anyone has information on this plant we would appreciate it.
    Not sure of the variety it is.
    Thank you for any help.

    It is only listed as invasive in the eastern USA where summers are hot and humid. Not reported to be a problem where summers are drier, you should be OK with it.
