It could be used as a screen instead of buying expensive woody plants and allow it to attach to chicken wire. It is not fragrant but comes in pink and blooms throughout the summer and into early fall, but it will attract butterflies. It is in the bean family so its tendrils will reach upwards of 6 feet and beyond, will tolerate drought, and will rot in winter if the soil is too moist. It should be cut back to the ground in the fall. It is native to Europe, deer will not munch. (source: propagatingperennials.blogspot.com)
