The dainty, semi-evergreen climber features vibrant green foliage and cascades of creamy flowers with purple centres. The blooms of the Cream-flowered Chocolate Vine possess an exceptional fragrance that will fill your garden with a warm, chocolaty scent from as early as March. If cross pollinated, the Akebia quinata cream-flowered can produce eye-catching, light pink edible fruits that are sausage-shaped and have a delicious tasting pulp.
The winter hardy climber has a medium growth rate and can reach more than 3m tall when fully established. It can be easily pruned, making it a great addition for either a large patio pot, or to be trained up a fence, trellis, pagoda, or wall. One of our top tips is to keep it close to a path or entrance of the house for you to fully appreciate its strong fragrance throughout spring!
