The dark green leaves are plump ovals to heart-shaped and held in opposite pairs on the creeping or clambering stems. They are highlighted with yellow blotches and splattering. Anytime when temperatures are warm and soil moisture ample, funnel-shaped flowers appear, opening white or yellow and becoming flushed with purple tones as they age. The blossom has five flaring lobes and will attract long-tongued moths.

A butterfly attracter, in addition to the lovely, pale orchid-colored flowers this variegated form has the additional benefit of year-round foliage color.

Landscape Use

Groundcover, flowering, trailing accent in container plantings

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
