I'm Looking For a Fruitless Grape Vine

Discussion in 'Grapes and Grape Vines' started by Dwain, Jan 27, 2005.

  1. I would like to find a grape vine that produces little or no fruit to grow over a large 50' x 12' pergola. I really likje the foliage of the grape but don't want the mess. Anybody have aby suggestions?

    Have you considered Ampelopsis brevipedunculata, the 'porcelainberry' ?
    This is vigourous, with leaves rather similar to the grape vine. Small insignificant flowers result in amazing turquoise berries. There can always be 'mess' though!

    Porcelain berry fruits, thus the name. Try Vitis coignetiae.
