A spectacular, strong-growing climber reaching over 10m (up to 4m of annual growth). Large, handsome leaves turn scarlet in autumn giving a magnificent display. Very hardy with no special soil requirements. Suitable for climbing tall fences, arbors and strong supports. Pruning: when it suppresses the growth of other plants. It's best done in late autumn or winter (before the vegetation period), or in summer after the stems have partially grown thick and woody; otherwise the vine will bleed sap.
