    Akebia quinata aka The Chocolate vine. Very vigorous grower where suited.

    It's extremely invasive in my garden, strangling shrubs and an apple tree, and snaking across the grass with its very tough stems. The stems get caught in the lawnmower blade and take an age to untangle. But I looked at the flowers this morning and was charmed all over again!

    I'm wondering whether it would be happy grown against my south-facing fence - RHS says southfacing  - does anyone grow it in full sun?
