About This Plant
Sun or partial shade. Deciduous with lobed palmate (hand-like) leaves and ornamental flowers (white with burgundy throats) that resemble hibiscus.Alamo Vine is easily grown from the previous year’s seed and spreads freely by rhizomes with a twining habit; in deeper soils south of the Hill Country, it’s an easy choice for a fenceline that requires no additional irrigation. It will freeze back to the roots in winter.
Noyau is French for kernel; a reference to the almond-like seeds. In South America, the vine’s tubers were boiled and eaten like sweet potatoes during periods of scarcity.
