March 3rd, 2007: Corkscrew Vine (Vigna caracalla) by dave

The Bloom of the Day for March 3rd, 2007 was Corkscrew Vine (Vigna caracalla).

View the bloom of the day here:

Bodrum, Turkey(Zone 10a)

These vines are incredibly beautiful. I have never had one grow successfully, one of my gardening pals from DG sent me one, but unfortunately it didnt survive.....
I havent seen any in Turkey, I think it would be suited to this climate.

Taft, TX(Zone 9a)

These are so beautiful to me that i want a greenhouse just so i could have these incredible vines!!

Taft, TX(Zone 9a)

Joy, joy to the world!!! A friend I am growing seedlings for just dmailed me to say that she has a corkscrew vine for doesn't get any better!!!!!

Calimesa, CA(Zone 9a)

I planted this vine, commonly known as Snail Vine in California, to block out my neighbor's ugly yard... it grew faster than any plant I've ever dealt with. Science fiction movies must have been made about this plant. Within 6 months, this gorgeous vine grew 8 foot tall and 40 feet long, covering arbors so densely you couldn't see daylight! Fantastic!
