NZ Jasmine.

Botanical name :
Jasminum polyanthum

Perennial, evergreen, climbing, almost hairless, non-woody vine with very long, round, tough, stems that root at nodes. Smooth edged leaves are arranged in opposite pairs on stems, and are divided along the midvein into usually 7 leaflets with the terminal leaflet (up to 7 x 2.5 cm) the largest. Clustered, tube-like white flowers that are pink when in bud and very fragrant are produced from January to December, but glossy black berries (5-8 mm diameter) are rarely formed.
