Chonemorpha This genus consists of twelve species of large evergreen vigorous woody vines with milky sap from India, Ceylon to South East Asia, the Philippines and South China. Growing dormant in sub-tropical and tropical climates and usually losing leaves if temperature gets below 60F. The plants have pubescent to almost tomentose branches, leaves and inflorescences. Large, corrugated, ovate leaves to 40 cm long, deep glossly green, opposite, pale and hairy beneath. Very fragrant, funnel-shaped, showy flowers to 8 cm across with long-peduncled and terminal cymes. Corolla cream with yellow center. Disk cupular with many seeds, ovate-shaped, compressed, with scanty endosperm, with a tuft of hairs at one end, dark brown. The plant is widely grown as a fence cover.

Cultivation The plants prefer a rich slightly acid soil and benefit from regular watering during summer, and can stand mild frost for a short period. Propagate from cuttings.
