Mascagnia lilacina

   A semi-deciduous vine that can reach up to 15' fairly rapidly.  It only needs something to twine upon.  It is a little more frost hardy than macroptera.  Small lavender flowers during summer months. Mexican native.  Full sun or part shade.  Will usually cluster at the top of the trellis. Hardy into the mid teens.  Small hairs on the foliage can cause irritation.  Can be evergreen in warm areas. Zone 9.
