Asarina. This vining plant grew very well in both Fargo and Dickinson although the wet June conditions in Fargo slowed it down. Asarina produces small, snapdragon-like flowers (one of the common names is purple twining snapdragon) but not many flowers were produced in either location. By the end of the season in Fargo, the plants were vigorous and took frost very well.
