An ornamental grape is a great climber to go over a pergola or fence. It is the same species as the wine making grape but the ornamental variety aborts its fruit so that it doesn't make a mess.
Common name: Ornamental grape.
Botanic name: Vitis vinifera. The genus name Vitis is the Latin word for grapevine.
Climate: Will grow in most of Australia except the tropical north and subtropical coastal northern NSW and Queensland.
Ornamental grapevines are available from nurseries throughout Australia within the best climate zone. A 17.5cm (7") pot costs around $10.90 and a 20cm (8") pot costs around $13.90.
