is a vine which grows in tropical areas. Known to Cubans as Picuala or Jasmin Manzano it is also known as the Rangoon Creeper.
It has the most beautiful flowers which turn from white in the morning to pink and finally red, or what I call magenta, as the sun comes up. By evening, it remains this intense magenta. The vine gives off this sweet intense scent of apples. Although intense, the scent is pleasant. If you are not careful, the vine will take over your entire yard, if you do not trim it weekly. It is labor intensive, so get ready for a weekly workout, yet is worth the hard work for its reward is the multitude of colors, dark green leaves and its sweet aroma, which will be enjoyed as you sit in your garden. It lasts all summer!
