This is a tender climber that is best grown indoors on in a greenhouse, also known as kangaroo vine. They flower from spring until summer and are followed by black berries. They're fast growing but can easily be cut back into shape. Popular ornamental plant, particularly in the subtropical climate of California where it is grown commonly in gardens.
