This evergreen climber clings to its support by means of aerial roots, forming a dense cover for a wall, or perhaps climbing through trees as it would do in its native Chile. Flowering in early spring, the masses of pink fluffy flowers clusters are said to be scented, we've yet to try them. Grows well in coastal gardens, but avoid panting where exposed to cold winds. New growth may need to be tied against a wall until it's established.
