    This plant is generally tolerant of drought and varying climate conditions. In fact, it grows so well in some areas, it is known for becoming invasive, though in your area this should not be a concern. I would simply water the plant deeply each week and more only as needed.

    Sure -- look for the seed pods that this vine produces, or you can try digging up and replanting the tubs that are underground. These articles may help you:

    There is a simple answer to this problem, and in short, the answer is, no. These will not survive unprotected in your area.

    Now, if you can bring it in during the winter then you will be able to grow them. You are well outside of its growing zone, and it will not survive your winters.
