(These plants were added to the pile on Wed evening, 15-May. Note no blue twist-tie.)
This is a real winegrape used in Germany, a cross between Madeleine Angevine and Gewurztraminer. See Mad. Ang. comments below. Several wineries in the area produce this wine: Whidbey Island Winery, Bainbridge Island Vineyards, Mount Baker Vineyards, Lopez Island Vineyards.

Madeleine Angevine (winegrape) [Sorry, no photo yet]
(Look for blue twist tie on stem.) This is a real winegrape used in Germany. It will grow well and produce a tasty crop here in the Puget Sound area. I'd recommend letting it crop heavily and making jelly from it as it takes many plants to produce enough juice for wine. For more info, see Puget Sound WineGrowers (


Yes, this is the strong smelling plant that repels bugs. Gets to 12" tall, takes up space if it can get it (it's the mint family, so it's fairly aggressive). Likes some sun, some water. Not easy to remove once established, so plan accordingly.
