Carolina Moonseed Vine

conroe_joe(9a)July 19, 2007

Hi Gang,

Carolina moonseed vine is a great addition to any garden that needs a natural look, or that is essentially natural. The vine is not rampant but does grow to the tops of small trees and it makes red berries in late summer or fall.

I found berries, cleaned them up, and germinated the seeds over winter in 1-gallon containers. Now I've got a couple of thes gentle climbers: one is growing into an eastern red cedar and one is growing into a live oak. The berries are bird food (I think).

The link below can guide you to a seed source so you can grow your own vines.

Cordially,

Joe
