A woody-stemmed evergreen twining climber 7m long, bore leathery dark green glossy leaves composed of 5-9, elliptic leaflets. Bearing in spring separate male and female yellow purple blushed pendant flowers to 3.2cm long, followed by edible sausage-shaped lilac fruits, when pollinated. Succeeds in most good garden soils enriched with organic matter, will require a sheltered site out of cold winds. Not tried for hardiness. Syn. Holboellia grandiflora.
