Eleven or so pearly petals radiate around a burnt pink center. Twenty or so flowers grow from a single branch. Branches jut perpendicular to the thicker vine. Green to brown leaves grows at these intersections. The thickest a trunk can boast of are roughly thumb diameters. This whimsical plant dances with the wind.
