This little known Western Australian climber has stunning red and green pea-shaped flowers and handsome green broad leaves. Use it to hide fences and other structures as a climbing plant or without support to climb on, it can be used as a prostrate ground cover. Give it a trim after flowering if you feel it needs to be tidied up, otherwise it is very low maintenance.
