Evergreen slender stemmed vine or groundcover (0.2m x 1m) from Korea and Japan forming dense mats of foliage. Glossy deep green small leathery leaves. Fragrant cream pinwheel-shaped flowers turning light yellow in summer. Useful mass planted as a weed suppressing groundcover. Variegated leaf form available. Tolerates short periods of drought. Foliage can be burnt by hot sun so a sheltered spot is preferred.
