Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

Here is a neat perennial twining vine that grows in rich woods and thickets from Delaware to Illinois to Kansas and south to Texas and the gulf states. At first glance, the leaves look a lot like Dutchmans Pipe Vine being 6" hearts, but its clusters of small yellow-brown flowers followed by 3" long bumpy pods lead you to this little-known member of the milkweed family. Anglepod grows to 10 feet or so and dies to the ground each winter. Grow it in shade and good soil where you can enjoy the big leaves and interesting flowers and fruits.
