Vitis Coignetiae (Crimson Glory Grape Vine)

Vitis Coignetiae (Crimson Glory Grape Vine)

Fabulous autumn colour

Heart-shaped, three to five-lobed, dark green leaves turning bright red in autumn and small, unpalatable, blue-black grapes. This vigorous, deciduous, ornamental climber has deeply impressed veins on the leaves and thick, brown felt underneath. Performing best in full sun, it's ideal for covering an unsightly fence or wall or for scrambling through an established tree. This vigorous climbing vine is originally from Japan and was introduced to Britain by Jardine and Matheson, the East India merchants in the late 19th century. It is a fast-growing plant that can reach up to 25m (82ft) although it will take some years to get to this height! Due to its size and density of leaf cover, it's best planted on its own.
