 Vigna speciosa
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Snail Vine
Origin: South America
vine or creeperfull sunsemi-shaderegular waterpink flowerswhite/off-white flowersblue/lavender/purple flowersattracts butterflies, hummingbirdssubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

An outstanding and exotic looking, fast growing vine that produces masses of fragrant flowers carried in bold clusters around strong 6" - 8" stems. The large, spiraling flowers are extremely attractive and create an on-going display all summer long. The flowers show up especially well set against the handsome mid-green foliage. This rare and unusual vine is ideal grown over a fence, trellis or arbor and can be used over lattice work to create shade for a deck or patio. It can even be grown in containers over a support. The most out-standing and floriferous member of this family. 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.
Also called "Phaseolus giganteus" (a horticultural name)
