Comments: The large, fragrant white flowers open in early evening and close as the first rays of light appear in the early morning. Except where it is hardy, it is used as an annual flowering vine. Where hardy, it can grow up to 90 feet in height. In cultivation its height and spread are limited by the dimension of the structure on which it is growing.
