In Bloom

PLANT OF THE MONTH: NOVEMBER 5, 2014

stauntonia

Plant Name: Stauntonia hexaphylla

Plant Location: Growing on the Cottage in the courtyard

Plant Notes: Stauntonia hexaphylla is a lovely evergreen twining climber with palmate leaves and small, fragrant bell-shaped flowers. Fall brings an extremely rare sighting of edible purple fruit (we found one this year!). "Hexaphylla" means six-leaved, and the handsome, glossy foilage is the true reason to grow this plant. It can be very difficult to grow, so a perfect site is needed. Stop by and look at our mature specimen, growing along the roof of the cottage.
