Description A hardy, deciduous vine that blossoms dependably in deep shade. If grown as a ground cover, it can spread up to 200 square feet. It has flattened clusters 6-10" wide of fragrant, white flowers in a lacecap configuration (small fertile flowers in the center with a marginal ring of showy sterile flowers). Flowers bloom in late spring to early summer. Heart-shaped, serrate, lustrous, dark green leaves (2-4" long) persist on the vine into late autumn, with little fall color. Exfoliating, reddish brown bark of older plants is attractive in winter.
