Garlic Vine (Bignonia aequinoctialis) is an evergreen climbing shrub growing 20 meters or taller and attaching itself to other plants for support by means of tendrils.
It is native to Central and South America and belongs to the bignonia family (Bignoniaceae).
The plant is harvested from the wild for local use as a source of fiber and basketry material.
The original botanical illustration was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).
Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.
He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
