Comments Its large, floppy, pink flowers have a silky texture and a subtle mottling suggestive of watercolors. They are borne in great numbers and on weak stems allowing them to face the viewer beneath. They carry a mild but pleasant aroma. It's a big plant that does best on a large pergola or wall. Unfortunately there is no repeat except where seasons are very long and warm.
