Vigorous, woody, deciduous climber with bold, plum purple leaves and dark purple grapes in late summer. This is one of the most beautiful climbers for autumn colour - the leaves in spring are a soft purple with a white down, giving them a silvery appearance. As the season progresses they turn purple intensifying to a very bright red/purple in autumn with black grapes. The fruit is small, harsh and unpalatable but can be used to make a very good, deep red wine.
Vitis can be grown over a pergola, arbour or allowed to scramble up a tree.
Grow in well-drained soil in sun.
