Rangoon Creeper in a Mosman garden, Sydney
This is quite a rampant climber in the tropics and has fallen out of favour in most tropical and sub tropical gardens because it is difficult to control ,spreading as it does by suckering . In warm temperate climates it is a little more well behaved, though the specimen above was cut off at ground level and it returned flowering within a year of this being done. The crimson flowers are sweetly perfumed and hang like bunches of cherries in clusters. Strangely the red buds open to white flowers which slowly deepen in colour from pink to crimson as they age..Foliage is also attractive with new growth taking on a bronze tone. It can be difficult to grow from cuttings which may be a reason why it is rarely offered for sale in nurseries.2017 update:I have sold all of my stock and don't have any available.
