Vallaris solanacea - Thai Cherry Vine
Thai Cherry, Scented Bread Flower, Asphota. This plant is a woody shrub with vining habit, close related to Vallaris glabra and Wrightia sp. Fragrant flowers resemble cherry flowers. They have an intense, interesting fragrance. The smell is said to be close to that of Pandan leaves, a relative of Kewda, which is used to flavor rice in some South-East Asian countries. An essential ingredient of the bunga rampai, the decorated arrangement of finely sliced, fragrant leaves used for Malay weddings. Can be trained as a compact bush and is good for container culture. The plant can be trained into a nice small tree or trimmed into a shrub, but the best way is to let it go: the twisting branches form weird shapes. Slow growing plant, makes compact forms. The plant blooms profusely on and off during spring and summer. Relatively cold tolerant, will stand short period of cool weather. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
