Leaves are so colorful no blooms necessary although it has bloomed sparsely. Flowers so tiny that I wouldn't have noticed except I was following the lovely scent to its source. Evergreen in Zone 8 and no pests or disease make it a favorite. It grows to 10 feet in one season but easy to trim. I've entwined it over and through a wire gateway but it doesn't cling or coil on its own. I've also used as groundcover...it roots shallowly, but easy to control spread. Fine in container or growing in ground. josh z8a
