Sometimes called the miniature red jade vine, C. grandiflora is blooming now. Not as impressive as Mucuna, but more cold hardy and nice to see the abundant flowers in December and January.

That's a very nice looking vine. I tried to check it out but there seems to be very little information on climate/culture requirements.

Grows vigorously, comes from Brazil but is pretty cold hardy considering. It will be taken down by frost but comes back from the roots bigger and better. Flowers in the winter. Very easy to grow.

Saw you other pictures posted. Everytime I see this it makes me want to give it a try!
Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing
