Rhodochiton atrosanguineus

 

Purple bell vine

Purple bell vine is an evergreen tender climber. It is fast-growing, and best as a container plant or grown as an annual. The leaves are heart-shaped,slightly hairy, and sometimes have purplish veining. The flowers are bell-shaped, with a pink calyx round a near-black protruding tubular corolla. Seeds are formed in a capsule inside the calyx. Purple bell vine needs support. (In bud, the dangling flowers look very suggestive!)
