Periploca graeca

In the Asclepiaceae beds you will find the unusual climber, Periploca graeca. It has grown up its supports to form a densely matted cone of glossy, ovate foliage. Against the shiny leaves, are clusters of small, dusky maroon flowers with an ornate structure. The fleshy sepals are sharply reflexed and bristle with silver hairs; five curling stamens form a sort of claw setting, off-setting the pale flower centre.
