Grape!? Kudzu or Kuzu Vine

クズ  葛    Japanese Arrowroot

The name is derived from the Japanese name for the plant East Asian arrowroot (Pueraria montana var. lobata), クズ or (kuzu)

クズウコン、(クズウコンなどの根茎から採った食用の)アロールートでんぷん

Smells just like Fanta Grape soda!

科名:Peuraria lobata                      mame pea leguminosae

This sweet smelling flower blooms from late summer well into Autumn.

Japanese Arrowroot is a vine like plant with tree leaflets and big roundish leaves.

 

The flower itself has lovely bright reds and yellows, the reds sometimes being almost purple.

It has quite a few different uses which I will add soon!
