Native Gourd Species Mix
(Cucurbita foetidissima and Apodanthera undulata)
C. foetidissima, commonly known as Fingerleaf Gourd, is a native vine with minimal water requirements that grows from 1,000-5000 ft in semidesert grasslands and shrublands and in disturbed areas. This low-spreading vine has very large yellow flowers that bloom May-August and are pollinated by native bees. This plant can be grown in partial to full sun in well-draining soils and is a good plant for erosion control.
A. undulata is also known as melon loco and is another great ground-sprawling gourd species.
