A native of the Amazon Rainforest (South America). It is a beautiful ornamental vine with opposite leaves divided into two ovate segments. Flowers are funnel shaped.
Vines can grow quite large with time. But generally stay to a length of 20 feet or so. It is an excellent vine to use for fences, trellis etc. There is no flowering season for this plant as the buds appear after few days of trimming and just after a few days of cloudy weather.
