From summer to autumn slightly fragrant bowl shaped white sometimes pink tinged flowers 7-10cm across with purple, blue and white zoned coronas. Rich green oblong leaves 10cm long divided almost to the base turning yellow and falling in autumn. Yellow fruits in hot summers. Use on walls fences to cover roofs and pergolas and up poles.

Plant in full sun to very light shade on a wide range of soil conditions except extremely dry. Normally hardy.
