Akebia Quinata
Information

Akebia Quinta often known as the Chocolate Vine is a superb climber with bright green leaves and wonderfully fragrant reddish-purple flowers in spring, sometimes followed by purple fruits. It is a strong climber although not overpowering or invasive and can be kept neat with a little tidy up after flowering. Wonderful when seen growing with a pale pink variety of montana.

Cultivation Advice.

Akebia are vigorous twining, semi-evergreen climbing shrubs, with attractive palmate or trifoliate leaves and racemes of cup-shaped purplish female and smaller male flowers, followed by large, sausage-shaped fruits, if cross-pollinated by another clone. A climber that thrives with any good garden soil and aspect but resents root disturbance.
