Description: A semi-evergreen climbing species, with twining red-brown stems covered with yellow-brown long stiff hairs when young. To 4m tall where we collected the seed on the mountains of northern Vietnam in the autumn of 2005. Bearing branches of ovate-elongate leathery leaves to 12cm long, in close opposite pairs along the branchlets, with axillary ellipsoid bloomy fruit held in congested clusters. Resulting from the up to 9cm long tubular scented flowers which open white ageing to yellow, April-May according to the Flora, but we suspect later.
