Is my thumbelina vine a perennial? I live in Southern Ontario.

I've got mixed information about this. Some sites say yes, others no. Is there something I can do to help it survive our winters?

    It is not viable in our zone outside. Southern plant but if you have good light somewhere just pot it up and bring it in to bloom during the winer in Ontario. Nice shot of colour for the grey days.

    That is a annual in you location.It will never be able to survive indoors,as many of these tropical vines are prone to spider mite and other insects once inside

    Ithink it's perennial in zones 7-10...you likely are in zone 5....I think your only hope is to gather seeds and sprinkle where you want the plant in the spring...
