This exotic looking climber, with twining stems ideal for rambling over trellises and fences, produces impressive trusses with up to 12 flowers per spike producing a spectacular combination as they age. They start off a most powerful and stunning bright red, maturing from red to orange, orange to yellow and from yellow to white, some of each combination being in flower simultaneously. These plants when positively loaded with flowers are an impressive sight.
