Maurandya antirrhiniflora ‘Joan Lorraine’
Botanical Name: Maurandya antirrhiniflora ‘Joan Lorraine’
Common Name: Climbing Snapdragon
Origin: Southwest US
Type: Tropical Vine

The thing I like most about this climbing member of the snapdragon family is its continuous production of deep amethyst blooms. Undaunted by hot weather, it flowers all summer right up to the first freeze of autumn. Easily reaching 8 feet in a single season, its small delicate leaves will also lend a distinct texture to the garden. Joan Lorraine is an especially floriferous purple cultivar.
