Semi-evergreen vigorous climber from forest margins in China and Japan. Fragrant brown-purple flowers in early spring which after a warm summer will bear large, pink fruits that split open to reveal rows of seeds - both unusual and highly ornamental.

Akebia quinata is fully hardy and prefers moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade. Fully grown height may be as much as 10m, soa powerful climber by any standards
