A deciduous, self-clinging vine with large, almost leathery, 3 or 5 lobes leaves. This choice variety has rich purple shoots and young leaves, maturing to green before turning to rich red and orange tones in autumn. May be grown against a wall, a strong fence, or allowed to scramble up a mature tree. It produces an abundance of black grapes. Although these are not poisonous they are unpalatable but make a very good wine.
