Last week, Chuck asked, “Has anyone worked with porcelain berries?” in his comment to the Privet and Viburnum Berries post….

So, have you worked with Porcelain berries? Are they difficult to find? Any tips on working with them?

Happy Tuesday!

My very favorite berries! I've never seen them at the flower market, but I sure cherish the porcelain vine in my garden.

Amy, Thank you so much for this! Totally made my day!

Francoise, I have been told that it a super hard get here in Denver. I may have to look into adding one to my garden!

Janet, I am not sure how I did not know that Saipua had a blog but thank you!!!!!

I have tried to order porcelain vine several different times from places all over the country and each time they have given me a raised brow and said "what vine?". I think it is gorgeous, and would love a source if anyone has one. I am not sure it would grow well here in Utah, otherwise I would plant it in a heartbeat, invasive or not!

I was going to suggest Sarah of Saipua too! She loves those!
I've never worked with them before, but intend to soon!
