Originating from China, Korea and Japan
Evergreen, twining climber with glossy, leathery green leaves with white variegation, turning a rich red in autumn. Produces pure white, exquisitely scented, pinwheel shaped flowers in summer. These are camouflaged against the variegated foliage but their perfume is still sensational.
Not quite as hardy as the plain green leaved variety it is worth trying in a very sheltered garden against a warm sunny wall. Alternatively grow in a pot to enable it to be moved indoors for winter or as a conservatory climber.
Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in sun or shade. It will even tolerate deep shade but may produce less flowers.
