Dipogon lignosus
“Cape Sweet Pea”

Need a vine in a hurry? Reliably perennial, evergreen or semi-evergreen in USDA zones 10 and 11, this amazingly fast growing member of the Pea family, native to South Africa will reach 10’ in 2 to 3 months and bloom from Spring thru Fall! Held on arching stems, the sweet grape soda-scented pinkish flower clusters look lovely against lush, gray-green, heart-shaped leaves. The whole vine is romantic-looking and perfect for covering a fence, arbor or growing around a door. Rich soil and full sun provides the best show, but part sun will do. It may go deciduous during heavy frosts. Self-sows!
