My Mother has a very much smaller variety of this an a houseplant ! Shame the gorgeous flowers need to be upturned to be appreciated, lovely scent too.

Yes, the flowers do hang down pretty low...but the fragrance is worth it. :>)

You're welcome. There's so many species of this vine which grows outside here in California. I used to see big ones growing on fences especially cyclone fences in the San Francisco Bay Area.
