Synonyms: M. hymenaea, Pseudocalymma alliaceum, Cydista aequinoctialis
While the correct name may be Mansoa hymenaea, you'll see it more often referred to as Mansoa alliacea in books and catalogs. You may also see it referred to as Pseudocalymma alliaceum or Cydista aequinoctialis. It's commonly known as Garlic Vine because of the smell the crushed leaves produce. However, the real attraction of the vine is the pale purple flowers.

Note how this vigorous vine can readily climb to the top of a nearby tree if left unchecked. However, excessive pruning of new growth will result in loss of the flowers this growth produces. For a small trellis, a less vigorous climber may be a better choice.
