Gardeners' Notes:

I have grown this beautiful vine for several years. The waxy leaves stay dark green all year round. The flowers start showing up in January and the plant continues to bloom year round until it gets too cold. My plant is grown in the ground, using a dead wood stump for climbing. The runners of the vine are slow growing.
