Akebia quinata - Chocolate Vine

Pretty purple flowers give off a scrumptious chocolate fragrance. Blue-green leaves are a wonderful contrast to the flowers and are in palm-like leaflets consisting of 3 to 5 leaves. The plant should be pruned very hard in the spring, after flowering, to control growth.

    First time planting these vines in the PNW. Late start and then cold fall arrived. Still growing strong, but slow. I expect continued growth throughout the temperate winter. Next spring will be the bounce .

    I was impressed both by the care that went into the packaging and the health of the plants. All three arrived healthy. I will most certainly consider Romance for future purchases.
