Introducing Akebia x pentaphylla, also known as the Five Leaved Akebia and Hybrid Chocolate Vine, a captivating climber that combines the best traits of its parents, Akebia quinata and Akebia trifoliata. True to its lineage, the Akebia x pentaphylla mesmerizes all senses with its fragrance and sight. In April to May, it blooms dark purple flowers characterized by a unique shape and the enticing scent of chocolate. Its leaves unfold in a stunning bronze, eventually maturing into a glossy dark green. This lush climber isn't shy about heights - with proper care, it will reach 20-30ft. It can be pruned without hesitation and looks spectacular when trained over a pergola or against a wall. Not just a sun-lover, Akebia x pentaphylla grows remarkably well in partial shade as well, although it shows a preference for damp and fertile soil. Bountiful in its charm, this deciduous to semi-evergreen climber is palmate in nature with three to five ovate leaflets. Although it typically doesn't bear fruit, its fragrant, maroon-brown flowers make it a sight to behold in any garden. All these factors make the Five Leaved Akebia a wonderful addition to your gardening adventure.
