A highly fragrant semi evergreen vine. Parent plants are from cuttings taken from the Queen Charlotte Islands. It grows lush blue-green foliage with a continuous 2 months bloom. Flowers start a rich pink and white where the white turns to a buttery yellow with age. Much loved by hummingbirds. Fairly carefree and deer don’t seem to touch it. Best growing on a low fence. Excellent cut flower as it will scent a very large room or small house. Prefers sunny garden settings of evenly moist soils.
