Rivea Corymbosa, also known as Ololiuhqui or snake plant, is a flowering vine related to morning glory and Hawaiian baby woodrose. All are members of the Convolvulaceae family with rivea unquestionably being the rarest of the three. Rivea’s beautiful bell-shaped flowers are white and its leaves are spade-like. This perennial climber is great for adorning fences, railings, trellis and mailboxes. Although valued as a sacred plant for hundreds of years in Southern and Central Mexico, coakihuitl, as it was called by the Aztecs, which means “snake plant”, was first described to westerners by explorer Francisco Hernandez as part of his job of describing the botanical specimens of Mexico for King Phillip II of Spain. In colder climates, rivea corymbosa should be grown as a potted plant and brought indoors for the coldest months.

**Buyer is responsible for frozen plants. USPS is heated, so the plant will be fine unless you leave it at your door too long. But if you are in a cold area and cannot get the plant right away, signature confirmation can be added to the shipping cost. They will hold the plant until you pick it up.
