Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Silver Lace Vine
Russian vine is a rampant, deciduous, woody vine that produces a profusion of small white flowers in summer and fall. Hailing from Afghanistan, Pakistan and nearby surrounds in central Asia, it likes to spread via rhizomes, or its underground stems. This twiner has glossy, mid-green, heart-shaped leaves that have bronze tones when young. Showy masses of greenish-white flowers appear from late summer to fall, followed by pinkish-white fruit. It is deciduous in cooler regions, and can be evergreen and flower as early as spring in areas with mild winters.
Situate Russian vine in a sun to partial shade location. It tolerates all but the wettest soils and in very dry gardens it would do better in a soil that is deep and fertile, otherwise the nutritive value of soil does not need to be outstanding. It can become quite invasive (both in the garden and in nature) and may need severe pruning each winter to keep it in bounds or a large structure to support it. Russian vine is well suited for covering banks or extremely-strong pergolas or unsightly landscape features.
