Vitis

Vitis coignetiae full sun  partial shade

Native to Japan and Korea—and absolutely extravagant! We love the grapes’ dramatic architecture and, in our garden, we’ve dedicated some substantial earthen columns to Crimson Gloryvine’s rampant blaze. Capable of filling an expanse, its very large (up to 10 to 12 in.) lobed and heart-shaped leaves are felted beneath in a rich rusty hue, providing a handsome palette for the display of diminutive greenish flowers that develop into clusters of beloved-by-birds purple-black fruit.

A satisfying gray-green through the summer, deciduous leaves spark to flaming shades of scarlet and amber as fall sets in. Easy-to-grow Gloryvine’s color intensifies in slightly dry soil where roots are somewhat restricted. Quart.

Blooms June.

Size: 30'–50' high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
