    The Vigna Genus is interesting. It's all legumes of one sort or another. Most are edible and cultivated for food. Some of the species have very interesting flowers like caracalla which is the Corkscrew and Snail Vines. Angularis or Adzuki has been called the Yellow Snail Vine. It does have the corkscrew/snail turn in the flower but its not very noticeable like the two caracalla species and the flowers of the Angularis are very small.
