Vines






Ampelopsis brevipedunculata 'Elegans'

A spectacular vine with very unique colouring, unlike that of any other vine. The green, grape-like leaves are heavily splashed with white and are attached to the stems by bright pink petioles. The new growth is infused with pink as well. In the fall, multicolored clusters of berries are formed. Each one has a porcelain-like finish and unique colour, and the different hues occur together in the same infructescence. They range from creamy yellow to pale lilac, amethyst purple, and bright turquoise. These fascinating clusters of fruit are unrivaled by any other perennial vine.
