Comments: This is a nice vine that provides a lot of foliage growth in a relatively short period. The flowers are often the subject of much interest because they are in the shape of Calabash pipe. The leaves are heart-shaped and can be quite large on some varieties. The fragrant flowers trap insects. The insects are released with pollen and visit other flowers.
