I know the description of this plant says the it will die to the ground but when winter came I was still shocked to see it disappear. When spring came I lightly dug around a bit to see if anything was left and I found nothing. I thought it was really gone. Then, as soon as the weather started getting warmer (I'm in zone 7) the shooters starting coming up everywhere! You'll have to be careful as where you let it grow because it will take over. All summer long I had PLENTY of blooms and they smelled so good. The growth of this plant is amazing! Neighbors and dog walkers kept asking what kind it was and complimenting the flowers. This is my second year with the Maypop and I got only one fruit but I understand that fruits are hard to get on the second year anyway.
Clean up at the end of the season can be a bit time-consuming as at the first frost everything dies and all the branches dry up quickly. Everything needs to be cut and removed from trellises or wherever it climbed on; however this tiny effort is so worth it! I love my Maypop Flower and look forward to how big it will get next year!
