Product Description

Akebia Quinata
Chocolate Vine

Scented Climber

An unusual climber, best grown in warmer gardens since the flowers are prone to damage from late frosts.

The maroon-chocolate flowers look almost artificial with three thick waxy 'petals' forming an inverted cup shape. These are clustered along the stems and have an exotic spicy fragrance with a hint of vanilla.

They stand out against a background of light purple, three-lobed leaves, most colourful in full sun.

In mild conditions the leaves last all winter but in cold areas expect them to be shed. After a particularly warm summer, large sausage-shaped fruit dangle enticingly from the stems.

It is great for covering low railings and walls, and is also good in containers where it could be trained on a frame and used as a specimen.
 
The plant is grown in a 3 litre deep pot and is approx 75cm tall
