These seeds were collected from Mansoa alliacea, also known as Garlic Vine Plant, ajo sacha, forest garlic, wild garlic, and False Garlic. This plant starts out like a vine but when mature has woody stems and can grow up to 8 feet high resembling a shrub or hedge. The flowers start off as a deep lavender and white and then slowly turn to a lighter shade. It blooms repeatedly throughout the year. The almost constant blooming and the beauty of the blossoms make this a great ornamental plant. Many people consider the plant good luck and hang the branches around their house to keep away evil spirits. I'm not convinced. The flowers do not smell like garlic, but when the leaves are crushed they smell like garlic. USDA Hardiness Zones 9 to 11.
