This plant is a strange plant. It leaves a tuber in the ground and dies down after the frost.Nothing happens until July then suddenly it sprouts up and begin to flower. The flower only open in the evening and is scented. This one has multi-colour flowers, but there are pink, orange and white ones. Providing the tuber top does not get frosted it can get quite a size, but will need tying up as the branches are rather weak and tends to flop over.
