Vitis vinifera 'Purpurea'


Vitis vinifera 'Purpurea' (Vitis vinifera 'Purpurea')

I love this vine - soon it will begin to turn purple before the leaves fall in the autumn.

Thanks, Clarice. I think I like this vine best out of the ones I have in the garden - it stays so beautiful - especially with sunlight through it (that's a rare sight this year!) Pity it loses its leaves... :-(

Mine lost all its leaves earlier than I'd expected, Dd. OH hacked it, too - he hates it when anything gets in his way...and a tendril had escaped. It'll grow back, I know, but why didn't he just tie it in?
