Masses of small white, star-shaped flowers open with a sweet perfume that some people liken to aniseed. Plant this gem in a sunny position to enhance and savour the scent. This quite rare and herbaceous species, closely related to C. recta, is non-clinging for the first metre or so, but then the leaf stalks begin grasping for nearby support.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
