Native to Central and South America, it is cherished for its substantial ornamental fragrant flowers and impressive fruits.

Its splendid purple, white, and blue banded flowers, each measuring 8-10 cm across, unfold in a continuous display from mid-Summer to Autumn. Adding to its allure, the fragrance is remarkably sweet and potent, carried on the breeze to enchant all who encounter it.
