Unique Fragrant Potted Plants for Sale | Corkscrew Vine

Are you looking for an unusual "wow" plant for your tropical garden? Well, then you're going to love this fragrant vine! Vigna Caracalla, also known as the Corkscrew or Snail Vine for obvious reasons, is cherished for its clusters of unique, multi-hued purple, pink, ivory, and yellow flowers. The spectacular show begins in mid to late summer and lasts until fall, with the possibility for an early spring bloom.

Growing up to 20', Corkscrew Vines are fast-growing perennials in warmer regions propagated by seeds (well, technically, they're beans). While this heat and humidity-loving plant is hardy in zones 9 and above, it makes a fabulous container plant in any climate. Enjoy!

Hello Smile
Really, really enjoy this vine!

Once blooming The scent is awesome. It is twinning up a stake hopefully it will bloom soon.
This has become a “difficult to find”plant.
Very glad that easy to grow is carrying this plant.

Beautiful plant!

I have ordered from several different plant suppliers this season, and I have to say the vine I received from ETGB is the nicest, healthiest plant I have received from any of them. It arrived in a timely manner and was packaged very well, which resulted in a lovely, undamaged plant. I’m very pleased and will order additional plants in the future.

Very Happy With My Purchase

It arrived in time perfectly packaged and is thriving in its new garden!! Really the best I have ever received from a catalog purchase! Will be doing lots more that right for my difficult 11 zone!

Thank you for your comprehensive review! We are thrilled that your corkscrew vine loves its new home. Happy gardening!

Great Plant

My plant arrived in great condition and is now growing by leaps and bounds in my backyard. I've always wanted one of these beautiful plants, but they are difficult to find. I was so happy to find them on your website. I can wait to see its beautiful blooms!

Janet Hahn

This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever grown, bar none. Everyone who has seen it is just enchanted with it. The blooms look so delicate but actually are pretty sturdy. The color is amazing! I just can't say enough good about it! I hope to get more! even to give as gifts!

Mary Gode

It’s been a long time since I’ve ordered a plant, it was just too depressing to sent half-dead twigs. My Vigna Caracalla just arrived and I’m so pleased. It’s a robust plant, well packaged. It’s up to me now, but at least I have a good start. I will order from this company again!


Ready for it to make flowers!!

Doing well

Plant arrived in good shape and is now doing well in my garden.

Thank you for your review of our Corkscrew Vine. We are pleased it arrived in good condition and is thriving in your garden. Happy Growing!


The plants were very pale, dry and stressed upon arrival. They are finally recovering and starting to grow. I’m hoping they will green up over time.
