Macfadyena unguis-cati - Cat's Claw Vine

Macfadyena unguis-cati, or Cat's Claw Vine is a good choice for a difficult hot sunny wall. But it is nearly a permanent choice. If you change your mind, the vines often come back from the roots, and do so repeatedly. Macfadyena unguis-cati can cover a whole wall and more. The roots can reach under curbs and sometimes walkways. Macfadyena unguis-cati is an enthusiastic vine and it should be isolated in its own small bed. The Cat's Claw blooms in late Spring with large yellow trumpet shaped blossoms that fade quickly.
