|Mature Size||Fast growing vine; grows 20 to 25 ft. each year.|
|Special Features||Fall Color, North American Native Selection, Showy Fruit, Waterwise, Edible, Fast Growing, Benefits Birds|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||Grapes can grow wherever there is direct sun and sufficient air circulation. They're traditionally trained overhead onto shade arbors over outdoor living spaces. Also popular for training along fence lines and up over arbor gateways. May be cultivated on standard wire trellis used in commercial vineyards.|
|Companion Plants||Raspberry (Rubus); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Lavender (Lavandula); Rose (Rosa); Fig (Ficus)|
|Care||Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize every 6 to 8 weeks until midsummer. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually in winter to control size.|
|Lore||It is believed that the European grape originated in Asia Minor, probably around Turkey, from a wild plant that produced small fruit. Over millennia it was selected for ever larger fruit to eventually produce the array of wine grapes cultivated today.|
