Parthenocissus henryana is perfect for covering difficult areas, especially north or east facing areas where many other climbers are unlikely to thrive. The Chinese Virginia Creeper is easy to grow, although they do well in dappled or full shade, a situation with at least a little sun will always give the best red autumn colours.

Although this is a smaller version of the Virginia Creeper it may still attain 10 metres if untrimmed.

Grow Parthenocissus henryana in any well drained soil, these climbers are self clinging but may need a little help to get started in the first couple of years. Once established guide any wayward shoots back and keep an eye that the plant doesnt encroach onto windows, gutters or roofs.
