This 15- to 20-ft. vine not only smells like dessert, it also produces loads of lovely, lilac purple flowers from May through June. Hardy in Zones 4-9, Chocolate Vine bears unique, leathery leaves that grow in attractive clusters and are evergreen in milder climates. Can be used as a climber on arbors, trellises and fences or as a lush ground cover. Large, edible seedpods ripen in early autumn and taste like tapioca pudding! Prefers full sun to partial shade. Ships in 4" pot. Zones 4-10. Akebia quintata 'Silver Bells'

I planted this about 2 years ago. It's healthy and growing but there has not been one flower on it since I got it.
