Covering one of the entrances to the Children's Garden is Akebia quinata (chocolate vine).  This is a fast growing, vigorous vine that also could be a ground cover.  It has a chocolately-purple flower that blooms in early spring with a delicate chocolate scent.  Click here for more information:  Chocolate Vine

Entrance to Children's Garden- Vine is on the left side of the trellis.
