When trained over a high pergola and blooming, it is truly a magnificent spectacle with countless pendulous flower clusters hanging on long chain-like spikes like a drapery, providing sheer delight, seemingly every day of the year as the flowers are so long-lasting. It is a woody-stemmed, evergreen plant.
It produces numerous clusters of showy bi-coloured reddish-brown and yellow blossoms, almost year-round in favourable growing conditions. It is considered to be the prettiest flowering vine in the world as acclaimed in the book, Vines of the World.
