"Red, red wine, stay close to me....." Can you just hear UB 40 crooning that old favorite tune with its reggae beat? How many other songs have been written about the fermentation of this revered fruit?

The history of grapes is as old as the history of mankind. There is evidence that as far back as Ancient Egypt, man has been transforming grapes into wine, one of the world's finest symbols of romance.

But even before it is transformed into that delicate, fermented beverage, grapes are linked symbolically with love, fertility and virility. The ancient Romans, acknowledged as the first civilization to cultivate grape vines, made both grapes and wine emblems of Bacchus, god of ecstasy (not to mention fertility). Even pre-dating the Romans, in ancient Greece it was a tradition to give clusters to newlyweds in the belief that the grape's seeds would bless the couple with many children.

Picture of Grape Coignetiae
CLICK TO ENLARGE...

This ornamental Grape from Japan has broad, lobed foliage which is glossy and green with a rust under felt. In autumn a spectacular change takes place and the leaves become a riot of amber, orange, scarlet, crimson and purple. The insignificant summer flowers are followed by inedible small fruit. Deciduous.

This climber will support itself with tendrils that will cling to most surfaces. It is vigorous and will cover a large area quite quickly so give it some space to show how lovely it can be. Likes a hot summer, good drainage and soil that is not too heavy.
