Family: Apocynaceae
Origin: Himilayan tropics
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

One of the most impressive climbing plants which also grows well in subtropical climates. A vigorous evergreen climber that can reach over 20 ft tall and as wide if a strong support is available. Very large leaves can reach 9 inches long and are a glossy green color with prominent veins and new growth has attractive brownish hairs. In late spring to early fall appear the terminal clusters of large (3-6 inch long by 4 inches wide) fragrant white flowers that are trumpet-shaped and resemble an Easter Lily.

Plant in full sun or light shade preferably in a rich soil and provide ample water. It is hardy to 28 degrees F and in cold years can be semi-deciduous. It dislikes heavy wet soil in winter. If pruning is required, as it often is because this plant can get rather large, do so just after flowering to promote new flowering wood for the following year.

Another very close species with slightly smaller leaves - Beaumontia murtonii.
