Description

This exquisite, woody, evergreen climber from the cold temperate forests of Southern Chile has strong, woody twining stems clad in hairy, leathery, triangular leaves. Trusses of many delicately-perfumed, beautiful, intriguing, purple-throated creamy flowers, flared at the mouth, appear at each leaf axil of the previous year's growth. A very choice and long lived plant making a woody trunk in time. The scent which drifts out may be dismissed at first, but there is something intoxicating about its intensity.
