A vigorous, evergreen, or semi-evergreen vine producing very fragrant purple-red blossoms showing off white interiors from spring off and on through late summer. A woody trailing vine that grows quickly on a trellis or fence providing a sweetly-fragrant screen for privacy or shade. Emerge in May and continue well into August. Flowers are up to 1.5? long, 2-lipped, and are very fragrant, thus attracting both hummingbirds and bees. In September flowers give rise to red berries. Songbirds easily find tasty berries.
