Common questions about growing Phaseolus

1. Where is the best place to plant a snail vine?

Snail vines (Vigna caracalla), also known as snail beans or corkscrew plants, are attractive evergreen vines that thrive in warm climates. They are native to Central and South America and prefer full sun, high humidity, and well-drained soil.

With proper care, snail vines can be a beautiful and rewarding addition to your garden.

2. Is corkscrew vine the same as snail vine?

Yes, corkscrew vine and snail vine are the same plant. The plant has two common names, both of which refer to its unique flower buds. The buds are tightly coiled and resemble a snail's shell, hence the name "snail vine." The buds also spiral open in a corkscrew-like fashion, hence the name "corkscrew vine."

The plant's scientific name is Vigna caracalla. It is a fast-growing, vining plant that can reach up to 30 feet in length. It has dark green leaves and produces showy, fragrant flowers that are typically purple or blue in color. The flowers are followed by long, bean-like pods.

Corkscrew vine is a popular choice for gardens and patios because it is easy to grow and care for. It is also a good choice for attracting pollinators, such as bees and butterflies.

3. Are corkscrew vines poisonous?

There is some conflicting information about whether or not corkscrew vines are poisonous. Some sources claim that the plant is toxic to both humans and animals, while others claim that it is not.

4. Is corkscrew vine a climber or creeper?

Corkscrew vine (Vigna caracalla) is a climber if it has something to support it. If there isn’t a trellis or the like for it to climb, it will grow along the ground as a creeper.
