This is a rather lovely, deciduous shrub with downy, greyish, vine-shaped leaves. Fast-growing and, if left to its own devices, eventually large and handsome, it bears from a fairly early age copious numbers of large, pale to deep mauve flowers. Although most profuse in late spring or early summer, blooms can be found as late as October. Likes a warm position.

although classified as tropical it grows well in my back yard with no winter protection. it is invasive sending roots to grow new plants as far as 20 feet.this year for the first time it has produced a half dozen red berries which we learned are edible. sweet and somewhat astringent but no distinct flavor .seeds are very small .
