Marsdenia floribunda (formerly Stephanotis floribunda) is a fast growing tropical vine that can reach heights of 15 feet or more. It's a vigorous climber, so give it a trellis to twine and climb. This vine has tough stems and thick dark green leaves. The fragrant white, star shaped flowers are produced in clusters during the summer months and the bloom color fades to yellow after several days. Marsdenia floribunda prefers a full sun location along with warmth, humidity and regular watering during the summer months.
