HAVE: Corkscrew Vine

Posted by easttexasgirl 8 ( on

I have two trades of Vigna caracalla, a perennial vine that has sweet fragrant flowers - Fascinating Blooms for Months! This quick-growing vine keeps you in color right into fall!

Even if your trellises are teeming with flowering vines, make room for this marvelously fragrant, distinctive tropical beauty! With a powerful, sweet fragrance that may remind you of Hyacinths, It can ture your patio, entryway, or even the humble mailbox into a perfumed paradise!

The blooms are simply exquisite, shot with primrose and shell-pink tones against a silvery base. They are shaped something like a nautilus shell, with a thick, coiled center and delicately curved outer petals. Each 1 1/4- to 2-inch blossom is distinctively beautiful -- and you'll get masses of them over the long bloomtime of this 20- to 25-foot vine! They arise is foot-long bunches up and down the stem, dangling enticingly from arbors or large hanging baskets! The foliage is lovely too -- 6 inches long, with three "fingers" and a soft, downy texture.

Sometimes called Snail Vine.
