Coccoloba uvifera 'Albo-variegata' Variegated Sea Grape






My first post for the new plants is on this Coccoloba uvifera ' Albo-variegata ' or Variegated Sea Grape . It has been top on my list of wants. But it is very expensive for just a small clipping. I have seen them for as much as $95 for a piece that is only 2 ft tall. 1 of the vendors had 2 very nice size Variegated Sea Grapes for $50 each. After lots of though Aaron and myself decided to split it. So we pooled together $48 and she took it. Now we will let it grow and then divide it. Today the lady told us if we would like we can bring it down to her propagation house and she would divide it for us if we wanted for free. Aaron does have a several normal Sea Grapes in the yard so we are going to practice on some of those first and see if we can be successful at propagating them are selves. Here are some pictures of this infamous Coccoloba uvifera ' Albo - variegata ' Variegated Sea Grape .

  1. I LOVE seagrape... don't grow it but love to see it growing. I can tell you I've never seen the variegated variety. Very interesting. I'm wondering if the grapes look the same?
