The genus Clytostoma consists of 24 species of woody-stemmed vines from subtropical America; native to Uruguay, Argentina and the southern part of Brazil. Its botanical name comes from the Greek, klytos which means "splendid" or "beauteous", and stoma ("mouth"); alluding to the beautiful flowers. Clytostoma callistegioides is a member of the Bignoniaceae family. It is an evergreen vine with a habit of clambering over adjacent foliage, fences and structures using tendrils to hang on tight. The bright glossy green leaves are lobed and divided with 2 leaflets, about 7.6 cm long and 3.8 cm wide. They are arranged opposite pairs and tendrils arise at the ends of the leaf stalks. In late spring, the 3.8 cm trumpet flowers are either terminal or along the branches. These are pale lavender and delicately detailed with dark violet and purple veins. They are followed by large prickly seed pods. This evergreen ornamental plant is up to 4 m. It has only recently been moved out of the Pandorea genus.
