Wiry stemmed climber with glossy, evergreen, variegated leaves of green, edged and splash with cream and often tinted red and pink, especially in winter. Very fragrant, star-shaped white flowers in spring and early summer.
Fertile, moist but well drained soil in sheltered, warm position. Will grow in quite deep shade in mild climates. Not very hardy and in cool climates is more suitable for a greenhouse or conservatory.
