This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
- Position: partial shade
- Soil: any moist but well-drained, fertile soil
- Rate of growth: average to fast
- Flowering period: July
- Hardiness: frost hardy (may need protection in winter)
Belonging to the same family as the grape vives, this deciduous climber has three- or five-lobed leaves, which are heavily mottled with cream and pink - and in autumn, it often takes on red or yellow tones before being shed. It makes a handsome addition to a warm, sheltered wall that has some shade through the hottest part of the day - and occasionally it may reward you with ornamental berries.
- Garden care: Trim to fit the available space in spring.
