This photo was taken in my garden, where it trails through a very old white flowered Lilac tree, and up onto the garage roof. A semi-evergreen climber growing up to 9 or even as much as 12 metres in a tree. The beautiful bronze-green leaves are divided into 5 leaflets ... they look stunning after a rain shower or covered in early morning dew. The fragrant purple flowers appear in April, having both male and female flowers in the same raceme. Weird, purple, sausage shaped fruits may be produced after a long hot summer. Akebia quinata is native to Japan, China and Korea. It was introduced to the UK in 1845 by Robert Fortune.
Rubus odoratus
Rubus odoratus
Purple-flowering raspberry in bloom at the Daniel Boone Native Gardens. They have an unusual flower color among the raspberries, as well as unusual leaves in that they are simple and lobed (similar to maple leaves) in contrast to the compound leaves of other raspberries. The plants produce edible fruit, but they are reported to be very fuzzy, dry and seedy and therefore rarely eaten.
