Notes:

This beautiful purple vine grew from seeds a friend gave us that have been passed down and collected for years.

It grows in full sun and “climbs like crazy.” This example was collected on October 29, 2010.

    I LOVE the name “oreo vine”!

    The black seeds have a distinct white stripe that does remind one of the famous cookie.

    You have a purple hyacinth bean vine.
