An unusual vigorous twinning climber. Clusters of fragrant violet-plum coloured blooms are nestled amongst bright green semi-evergreen foliage. Known as the Chocolate Vine for the sweet tasting sausage shaped fruit that follow the chocolaty scented flowers. Native to China and Japan, where the vines were traditionally woven into baskets. Its mature height is 4m after 5-10 years and once established it needs only very gentle pruning. 9cm pot plants supplied.
