A vigorous climber (but a slower grower than Vitis coignetiae) with stunning, large (15-25 cm), 3-5 lobed leaves that turn crimson in autumn. Attains a height of 15 m with up to 2 m of annual growth. It has small soil requirements and is frost hardy. Native to Far East (China, Japan, Korea, Syberia). Suitable for growing up tall fences, arbours, and sturdy supports, everywhere where there is too little room for Vitis coignetiae. Pruning: when it disturbs neighbouring plants. It’s best pruned in late autumn or winter (before the start of the growing season), or in summer, after the new wood has become partially woody. Otherwise it will bleed sap.
