(Syn. Cochliasanthus caracalla) This is such a weird and wonderful climber we just had to grow it! The corkscrew shaped flowers are highly fragrant and transit through purple-lilac to cream, turning yellow with age.

It originates from central and south America where the fragrant flowers attract ants for pollination. Suitable for growing in a big pot on a summer patio or humid conservatory. This climber is pretty vigorous and needs plenty of water in summer and a warm and fairly humid environment. Keep Frost free in winter
