This is a climbing, scrambling plant of warm temperate rainforest in south-eastern Australia. The flowers are mainly white in clusters and are said to be fragrant, but I do not seem to be able to detect the scent.
I grew some from seed a few years ago and have one well established plant in my garden, which has now climbed to some 3 metres. It flowers and fruits regularly. I was surprised to find I have never photographed the flowers and will remedy that later this year when it next flowers and add a picture to the database.
