Ampelopsis aconitifolia

This rarely used deciduous vine from China is one of my favourite foliage climbers with its deeply cut bright green leaves it always makes a statement. It flowers are tiny and of no consequence but the tiny orange berries are pretty. The leaves turn yellow before shedding. I grow it on a metal tripod that I prune it back to each winter however it could grow quite well over an arch or pergola as well.

A sunny to semi-shaded aspect will suit well and it is drought tolerant and cold hardy and I have plants in 15cm pots at $24.50DSC_0310
