What Houzz contributors are saying:
PumpkinThe much celebrated pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima) grows on a creeper. This plant is a glutton for space and it can spread very fast to take over all the ground available. Each plant can cover upto 50 to 100 square feet, as each fruit needs runners that are at least 10 feet long for nourishment. Their yellow flowers look cheerful and pretty; plus, they are edible, too! Fun fact: While pumpkin, squash and zucchini are considered different vegetables, they are actually the same genus and species and can interbreed with one another. Their flowers look very similar, too.
