This popular, decidious vine is dense and
self-clinging, an excellent vine for clinging to stonework and for climbing
fences. Purplish new growth matures to thick, glossy green foliage before
turning brilliant colors of orange to dark red-purple in the fall. This vine
grows best on the north and east sides of buildings or fences, giving it a
break from the hot summer sun.
Hardy to -40°
Maximum elevation: 6,500 ft
