I have got two species of Strophanthus in my garden; one is the Strophanthus gratus (Climbing Oleander) and the other the Strophanthus preussii (Medusa flower). The former produces very pretty pink flowers with a light fragrance. The latter produces small clusters of beautiful blooms with petals which have dangling, twisted sticky maroon threads. Both are reasonably low maintenance and requires some pruning to encourage bushier growth and flowering.
