Asarina scandens 'Joan Lorraine'

Easy, fast growing and long lived! This beautiful Mexican vine with white-throated, velvety purple trumpets and lush delicate foliage creates a solid 5’ wide and 8-10’ tall “wall” of trident-shaped emerald green leaves. It’s wonderful on a fence, trellis, or arch. Long-blooming too, flowering from July till September with loads of 2” richest purple, flaring, hummer attracting blooms. Best in part shade to morning sun and rich soil. Can be cut back in Fall.
