Caracalla means that it comes from Caracas, in Venezuela. Fast-growing, twining vine attracts butterflies with fragrant flowers from mid-summer into fall. The 2" blooms have upper petals that contort and bend backwards, with the elongated keel coiled in 4 or 5 spirals like a Corkscrew. The flowers are quite fragrant and are mostly pollinated by ants - if you have no ants, you'll have no pods and therefore no seeds
