Parthenocissus are vigorous deciduous climbers with either tendrils or disk-like suckers, and lobed or palmate leaves which often colour brilliantly in autumn. Inconspicuous green flowers are sometimes followed by attractive blue or black berries. This breed of the plant originates from the Far East, China and Japan to be exact. The plant is hardy at H5 and is excellent for the UK climate. Just make sure to shelter in extreme cold weather conditions. The plant can grow in full shade as well. The plant is mainly disease free but can be subject to potential pests so keep an eye out for this. The maximum height is about 12 m (39 ft) and the maximum spread is about 8 m (26 ft)
