Vitis coignetiae

Of all the plants in the grape vine family this Asian species with the appropriate common name of Glory Vine has to take the cake. It can grow huge if allowed to have its own way but can be trained and pruned like the domestic grapevine making it ideal to cover senses or grow over a pergola to create great summer shade.

Its huge puckered leaves turn brilliant shades of yellow, orange, red and burgundy in autumn allowing  all the winter light to penetrate.
