An exceptional creeper with brilliant autumn colour. Quick to establish and grow it is adored by landscapers the world over. The deeply divided leaves have an almost velvet texture and change throughout the seasons.

The new, palmate leaves have a purple blush through which the silver veins create a dynamic highlight. As they mature through to a lush green in the summer, then a triumphant red in autumn. The photographs we have used does not do it justice – we need to get the camera out more often!

Parthenocissus henryana is a self clinging, woody climber perfect for covering a wall, fence, tree or trellis. It is quick to establish and will draw plenty of comment from garden visitors. It is not quite as quick as Virginia Creepers but it will take more shade – though the red autumn colour is unlikely to be as intense.

Parthenocissus henryana holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it will be good.

The summer clusters of tiny, green flowers are sometimes followed by dark blue or black berries. Both are insignificant in comparison to the foliage but the birds enjoy them.

Fair warning, the suckers will mark paint work but, as far as I’m concerned it can ramble where it likes as the benefits far outweigh a few spots on the paint!

Common names include Chinese Virginia Creeper, Silver Vein Creeper.
