Evergreen climber from China.

Has lance shaped, smooth, dark green, glossy leaves. Bears small, tubular, 2 lipped, reddish purple flowers with a yellowish throat. Sometimes bears black berries although I'm yet to see any.

Flowers June-August

Likes a moist but well drained, humus rich soil in sun or partial shade. Suffers less problems from aphids if planted in shade.

Berries can cause stomach upset if eaten.
