A Chinese deciduous climber in the grapevine family that makes an ideal plant to grow on an obelisk or post as it isn’t too vigorous. It is grown principally for its lovely leaves that turn yellow in autumn although its clusters of multicoloured berries are lovely in autumn. any sunny to semi shaded aspect with good drainage should suit this undemanding plant. I have plants in 15cm. pots at $22.50
