Tristellateia australasiae - Maiden's Jealousy (星果藤 - xing1 guo3 teng2)

Now if ever I think of dressing up my fence, I would consider planting this vine because of the perpetual flowering. The only downside is that like all vines, it needs constant pruning and trimming so that it does not intrude into the neighbour's garden.

Common Name: Maiden's Jealousy
Family: Malpighiaceae Juss.
Origin: southeast Asia to New Caledonia
