Five-Leaf Akebia

Also known as the chocolate vine, the five-leaf akebia is a vigorous semievergreen with strong, twining stems which bear clusters of purplish flowers and unusual sausage-shaped fruits. Tolerant of full sun or partial sun and well-drained or moist soil, plant it against a wall or train it into a tree or pergola where it can grow to 30 feet tall.
