Very heavy lemon-like fragrance is similar to Ylang-Ylang. Clusters of golden yellow blooms form along the vining stems during summer months. Individual blooms emerge successively over a period of weeks emitting a rich, heavy fragrance that's reliable day or night. Used for lais in Hawaii, it grows vigorously during the long warm days of summer with growth slowing and eventually coming to a standstill throughout the winter. Hardy Zone 10 and higher. Full or partial sun, grows to 2-3' in a container, vining in habit, minimum temperature 60°F, blooms in spring summer and fall.

This ornamental and fragrant climber is fried or boiled in several South East Asian recipes. The cut flowers are sold in markets wrapped in banana leaves. These flowers are tasty, rich in carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins A et C.
