Family: Magnolia (Magnoliaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 8
(Wu-wei-zi, Matrimony Vine, Magnolia Vine) Perennial woody vine. Native to Manchuria, northeastern China and Japan. The odoriferous pink or white flowers give way to bright red fruit which droops down in clusters from the vine. This is known as the many-flavored berry. The taste is sour. Traditional usage (TCM): appetite stimulant, immune-enhancement. Vine prefers moist soils and dappled shade, and really prefers to sprangle on the ground instead of climbing a trellis. Space 3 feet apart.
