There´s little difference between this species and Petrea volubilis (Sandpaper Vine). The most reamrkable difference is the presence of brown scales under the P. volubilis´ leaves (trichomes), and the lack of them in P. racemosa. The shape (a shrub that can be educated as a vine), the colors, and the flowers are almost the same, just as the cultivation methods.
