Common Name: Snail Flower, Corkscrew Flower, Snail Bean
Description: Unique, large, snail-shaped, pink-purple flowers all summer on this tender, twining vine. For trellises, baskets, and planters.
The Vigna caracalla snail vine is an attractive evergreen vine in USDA zones 9 through 11 and will die back in cooler regions for the winter. Many people that live in cooler regions will set this interesting plant out for the summer and grow it indoors for the winter. This beautiful tropical vine, with lavender and white flowers, is native to Central and South America and thrives in full sun and high humidity. It is also known as a snail bean or corkscrew plant and makes a very pretty addition in a hanging basket or container, where it will dangle up to 15 feet if permitted.
