Cubaea (Cup & Saucer Vine)
Cup and saucer vine is a climbing vine featuring thin, lightweight leaves and white or purple flowers that resemble the shape of a cup or bell, hence the unique name. This vine is a vigorous, rapid grower. The plant has plentiful bright green leaves that are oblong in shape. The cup-shaped flowers are pale green as they start to open, but quickly turn purple or white as they fill out. The opening buds have a somewhat unpleasant scent, but once fully opened, the flowers develop a floral-honey fragrance.
