Perfect flower first bloom today

This is a picture my Southern Home hybrid grape/muscadine perfect bloom. It is easy to see what makes this a perfect bloom as the anthers sticks out beyond stigma. Bill

Wow, It is indeed perfect flower. What was the advantage to hybrid these two? Cold hardness, disease resistance, productivity…?

@IL847. It is advertised as disease resistant like almost all our muscadines are in my area. The two characeristic that appear different are the maple looking leaf and the fruit clusters are much larger. Hope to have a taste comparison later on. I also added Lane muscadine.

Good to know,thanks. I was gonna ask the taste, more like grape or muscadine. Keep us posted when fruits ripe

I think the grapes have the best smell when in bloom. They could make a perfume with it.
