One of the largest and showiest flowers of any vine is produced by this luxuriant Mexican species, which is also hardier to cold than other solandras. The 9 inch chalice-shaped flowers open yellow, then turn to gold, and have a delicious coconut scent. These magnificent blossoms may occur at any season, especially in winter. It is easily trained as a shrub or espalier, with handsome 6 inch glossy leaves. In mild climates, it's a spectacular garden plant.
