We are very pleased to be offering, in VERY LIMITED QUANITY this year, the rare WHITE CHOCOLATE VINE, Akebia quinata ALBA also known as Akebia 'Shirobana'. This jewel of climbers is simply one of the most delicious and mouth watering vines, with the light green, exotic foliage of the chocolate vine, followed in Spring by a profusion of WHITE to CREAM flowers covering the whole vine - each flower having a delicate and beautiful purple centre. But this most sort after vine is grown for one other reason; it's fragrance! Difficult to describe, but smelling of very sweet white chocolate ice cream (!) Quite a remarkable scent, and much more potent (and different) than the vanilla of the Akebia quinata.
