Interesting twining climber with alternate leaves and clusters of flowers borne at each node on a 2" stem ending in a green bract . The inflorescence comprises panicles of small spiral cymes ( cincinni) which in my clone are violet in bud with violet stems. The basal cincinnus bears perfect flowers, whilst the others are usually male.
The plant must have cool roots to survive, but is otherwise un-demanding. Probably root hardy but I have not tried it outdoors in winter.
