A truly beautiful plant suitable for both trellis and hanging baskets.

Though the leaves may vary some in size they are usually approx. 4" long an an inch wide. They are dark green in color with various amounts of sulver flecks. Both leaves and stems are pubescent. The stems are quite thin, about1/10 of an inch, and fragile so one should be careful when handeling tha plant as it breaks easily.

Blooms in umbels of 20-30 large, white, slightly cup shaped and highly fragrant flowers.

If kept slightly moist at all times it seems to me a quite easily cultivated plant. Prefers a somewhat cool and shaded position and a window facing north is sufficient, east is ideal.
