Akebia quinata

Know this plant well,in an unusual family the Lardizabalaceae.Used to grow it at work but don't have one in my own garden. Nice to see choice garden plants on iSpot.

Thanks for your comment,

Thanks for your comment, David. It's interesting to hear that you used to grow this plant at work. The one in my photo was planted by a previous owner of my bungalow and I think the flowers are looking particularly nice this year. Bumblebees and hairy footed flower bees in particular seem to be attracted to Akebia quinata!
