They are characterized by being evergreen with a creeping or climbing habit grown in pots by leaf but also by flower, even if less showy.

The white flowers on the outside with shades varying in the center according to the species from rosacea to purple, appear as modeled in wax, hence the vulgar name attributed to them, or wax flower, are then usually grouped in umbels at the armpit of leaves from May to September.
