Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The large, spiraling flowers are extremely attractive and create an on-going display all summer long. The flowers show up especially well set against the handsome mid-green foliage. This rare and unusual vine is ideal grown over a fence, trellis or arbor and can be used over lattice work to create shade for a deck or patio. It can even be grown in containers over a support. The most out-standing and floriferous member of this family. The flowers are quite fragrant and are mostly pollinated by ants - if you have no ants, you'll have no pods and therefore no seeds.

Blue Chaste Tree. Chaste tree carries several sacred names, which more or less directly refer to its reputation as an anaphrodisiac. The chaste tree is a sprawling plant that grows 10-20 ft and about as wide. Branched flower clusters are produced on new wood in late spring and early summer in a great flush that makes the tree look like a hazy purple cloud. Flowers are followed by a fleshy fruit that contains four seeds that are sometimes used as seasoning, similar to black pepper. Easy to grow in almost any soil that has good drainage! Even tolerant of salt drift.
Plant the seeds 1/2" deep in potting soil mix, keep damp and in bright light.

Vine or creeperFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Delicious Seedless Grape. Red-skinned, small to medium size fruit with high sugar content (about 20%). Ripens early to mid-season. Vigorous vine, self-fertile but needs to be pollinated by another variety for better results. Disease tolerant. Muscadine grapes grow well in hot and humid climate.

Vitis x rotundifolia - Southern Home Seedless

Click to see full-size image

Vine or creeperFull sunRegular waterDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

It is such a beautiful plant that you'll want it just for how it looks growing on your trellis or fence! The finely cut green, Grape leaves make this an airy and romantic vine, like it's posing for a painter's still life. But, it is so much more than a pretty face!
These beautiful vines are prolific fruit bearers. You will get cluster after cluster of deep purple-black perfectly round Grapes. The Grapes are firm, not mushy, and they have a nice balance between tart and sweet. They are perfect for eating fresh-out-of-hand or for juice.
These are a Muscadine hybrid, having been crossed between several types of grapes. They are very hardy and are great Grapes for the Deep South and coastal areas because they don't require a high amount of chill time to set their fruit or achieve their sweet/sour balance. They were bred out of the University of Florida so you know they'll handle hot, sultry summers.
Southern Home Grape is self-pollinating, too, so you don't have to plant other types of Grapes with it to get a good crop every year.
