Clytostoma callistegioides is a robust and carefree grower with distinctive showy flowers.  It has woody vine characteristics with a habit of growing rapidly over adjacent foliage fences and structures. It uses tendrils to attach and climb.The bright glossy green leaves are oblong about 3 in. long and 1 ½ in. wide.  In late spring the vine is full of color when the spectacular 3 in. trumpet flowers appear. The flowers are pale lavender and delicately detailed with dark violet and purple streaks. Flowers are then followed by large prickly seed pods.
