It is a free flowering vigorous climber which is suitable for a fencing or trained on a pole, hoop, trelis or pergola. Also suitable for containers and hanging baskets.
This recent introduction into the horticultural world was named after Dr. Eric Wolfe who discovered the plant in Kedah and presented it to Mr. J.W. Ewart, the Assistant Curator at the Singapore Botanical Gardens in 1938. Dr. EDP Wolf was the Deputy Director of Medical Services of The Federation of Malaya. This climber was first recorded in the states of Kedah and Terengganu in Peninsular Malaysia.
In Malaysia, we can quite easily find it at our local nurseries.
Are you growing it in your climate zone?
