Tender shrub from South America with beautiful pendent, white and yellow flowers in summer. It naturally has a scrambling habit with long stems which may need some support. Best grown against a wall where it can be tied in. Prune lightly after flowering and feed during growing season. Needs a large pot to flower well. Should take a touch of frost but doesn't like excessive wet so really best over-wintered under cover in all but the mildest of gardens
