This species is less vigorous than its popular relative, the Virginia creeper. It is a deciduous climber, ideal for small gardens, where it will quickly cover an awkward area, such as a north or east-facing wall. Unless it is grown in a sunny spot, its autumn colour is less dramatic too, but in spring and summer, its leaves are very pretty - deeply divided, velvety and dark green with prominent white and pink veins. A versatile and handsome plant.
