Plants for the Wine and Plant Enthusiasts

If you are a wine and garden enthusiast you may want to include a few flowers named for your favorite wine. It’s a fun way to combine two hobbies.

Landscape Designer Bobbie Schwartz shared a few of her favorites on Bobbie’s Green Thumb Pages.

If you like reds, you may want to include Burgundy Glow ajuga also known as bugleweed. This groundcover has a combination of green, white, rose and pink leaves and is covered with spikes of violet-blue flowers in spring.

For the Pinot lovers consider the hardy Hibiscus ‘Pinot Noir’ with large red flowers or Hibiscus 'Splash Pinot Grigio' with large white flowers and a pale pink ring at the center. Both are three feet tall and wide and flower from mid-summer into fall.

Champagne lovers may want to include Clematis Pink Champagne™.  You’ll enjoy the large deep pink flowers with the pale center and wavy edged petals.

A bit more information: For more wine inspired flower varieties check out the Bobbie's blog post More Wine in the Garden. And be sure to look for others at your favorite garden center or plant catalogue.
