Buy Vitis coignetiae crimson glory grape vine: Fabulous autumn colour

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter in to the planting hole. It will need some help to clamber up a tree, wall or pergola so you will need to provide some support and tie it in as it grows. Once it has developed a good framework you should shorten all the lateral shoots to within two or three buds from the main stem. It is essential that the majority of the pruning work is tackled in mid winter as the sap tends to 'bleed' at other times of the year, but you can cut back the odd over-long stem to a healthy bud in summer.

Is this plant suitable for planting in a large container? We would like to train it to cover a large fence

Laura

Hello, It is possible to grow it in a large pot, provided it is kept well fed and watered, but if you want it to cover a large fence, then you will need to plant it in the ground.

Take advantage and do some early spring planting, but only on clement days. You can never have too many climbers and twiners, and now is the ideal time to get them in. They take up little ground space, so they’re perfect for smaller plots, and then they g
