Vigna caracalla ‘Thomas Jefferson’

Fragrant Snail Vine

Fast summer blooming vine. Fragrant curled flowers resemble a snail’s shell, in shades of lavender and white. Twining habit, great for covering chain link fence. Full sun or part shade. Can grow 20’ or more. Dislikes temperatures below 50, and usually loses some leaves in the winter. Found in Thomas Jefferson's garden in Monticello, where is was grown as an annual. It makes beans pods after bloom and can be grown from the dried seed collected the following season. Often confused with the species Phaseolus caracalla, the snail vine, is similar but not fragrant. Both grow great on a chain link fence.
