|Cochliasanthus caracalla, Vigna caracalla, Phaseolus caracalla|
Family: Fabaceae subfam. Faboideae
Corkscrew flower, Snail vine
Origin: South America
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

An outstanding and exotic looking, fast growing vine that produces masses of fragrant, curious shape, snail-like looking flowers carried in bold clusters.
