Ampelopsis brevipedunculata 'Elegans' - 2016

By Andrewr


Ampelopsis brevipedunculata 'Elegans' - 2016 (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata 'Elegans')

Climber, mainly grown for its variegated leaves. It has small tendrils for support, but I find these are not man enough for the job, and the plant needs tying to its support. Berries are produced after a hot summer. Best in light shade in soil that remains moist. Grows to around five feet but is always late to start in the spring.

Amy - the flowers are small and white and easy to miss. They are carried in late July and early August.
