A species that I have always known as a tropical climber, grown as a houseplant. I was amazed when I was offered plant from a form that had been hardy for several years in an unheated poly-tunnel. Although it is found from Queensland, Australia and Japan through to Malaysia in tropical habitats it can also be found in southern China as far north as Yunnan where it may experience lower temperatures.
Disregarding expectation, it has prospered in a cold greenhouse for me, flowering reliably in late summer.
