Quisqualis creeper. One of my successes of growing from seed. Can be a little agrresive in growth requiring maintenance but gardening not the same if you cant prune your plants.

Is this what is sometimes called a fruitsalad vine? Had one years ago and loved it but have never seen one again.

@leisel my favourite fragrant climber! I'm growing one in UK, but have to overwinter it carefully, not flowered yet....keep hoping! Can I ask where you got your seed from? Did they germinate easily? I've managed to get one cutting to root, they seem diff to propogate from cuttings!! 😃

@drnicko My sister got them from a friend off their vine. If I recall a had a low percentage of success with seeds. I live in Australia so thinking might have better success with seed propagation.

@JoeyDav I have the idea that it is quite an old fashioned plant in respect to plants today.
