An attractive woody evergreen climber with rich leathery dark green leaves which turn bronze in autumn. Clusters of strongly fragrant pure white flowers are produced from mid- to late summer. It is best grown against a warm sunny (south facing) wall in milder areas or in a greenhouse or conservatory in areas prone to severe frosts as it is frost hardy (needs winter protection).

Garden Care: After flowering has finished prune back to fit the available space. In frost prone areas grow in pots of loam-based potting compost such as John Innes No2 and move to a frost-free spot in winter.
