A fast-growing, climbing, evergreen vine with narrow oval leaves. From late summer to autumn it bears a succession of small sprays of waxy, bell-shaped, fragrant, white and pale pink flowers. Originally from South America it is now widely cultivated as an ornamental in tropical and warm temperate climates. The sticky pollen can temporarily trap visiting moths, hence its common name 'Cruel Plant'.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
