Buy Akebia quinata cream-flowered chocolate vine: A more unusual, cream coloured form

This climber is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The mid-green leaves of this semi-evergreen climber are tinged with purple in winter, and emerge flushed with bronze in spring. It makes an ideal backdrop for the scented, cream coloured flowers, which appear in spring. It's great for covering ugly walls, and it also works really well trained over a pergola, where the pendent flower clusters can be viewed from below.

  • Garden care: Prune back after flowering where necessary.

Eventual height & spread

Great in a difficult position.


This is growing well in a difficult place - against a fence opposite a path leading past windows. It does not get a huge amount of sunlight. But it seems very happy. Slow growing but very green.

I would deffinately buy again


In a planter and doing well




Fast grower


I bought this plant during the hot summer and despite that, or maybe because of it, it grew up the post of the pergola within a couple of months and started growing along the top. Hopefully, this year it will put on much more growth. Great plant and received in very good condition.




Brilliant plants and service as always


Beautiful very healthy plant, just what I wanted.

Can I grow Adebia quinata in a large pot against a south facing wall? I plan to provide it with some trellis to hold onto. Many thanks.


Hello, I would advise against it as these plants do want to grow pretty big, and if they are kept in a pot they will eventually start to struggle.


I have a windy garden about 1km as the crow flies from the sea near Brighton, will this plant cope with this situation?


Hello there Although this climber will tolerate some wind I wouldn't grow it in a very windy location, unless you can give it some protection. Hope this helps.
