Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From one of our collection from Ch'├Állip'o, South Korea gathered in the autumn of 1997. A woody-stemmed, twining climber with leaves comprising of three leaflets, which are purple flushed in spring. Vanilla-chocolate scented, dark purple flowers appear in early spring (in March for us) followed by late summer with sausage shaped purplish fruits to 13cm long, if pollinated by another clone. Best grown in full sun to part shade in drained soil. For fruit you must have two clones (seedlings) i.e. not cuttings from the same plant as are normally offered in Western cultivation.
