We’ve planted our California native grape, Vitis californica ‘Roger’s Red‘ by this covered front porch.
Deciduous vines offer passive solar cooling benefits and easy maintenance. On hot summer days vines provides extra shade. When cool fall weather arrives, the leaves turns bright red before falling off. Fallen grape leaves are great garden mulch, and the bare vines are easy to trim. Self-cleaning vines!
wow! those are two of the best photos i’ve seen using california native grape in the landscape!
