This deciduous, late-flowering twining vine has shiny, deep green, leathery leaves, and profuse clusters of exuberant, fragrant, white star-shaped flowers. Easy to grow, it will thrive and bloom even in shade, where its flowers appear from late July to October, before maturing to attractive, plume-like seed heads. This is a naturally fast-and-easy-growing plant that requires little attention, but is more constrained in its habit than many others, sometimes making just a solid dome.
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.
