Parthenocissus Henryana (chinese Virginia Creeper) Clematis and Climbers
Parthenocissus henryana is the Chinese Virginia Creeper, a less vigorous relative that is perhaps better suited to smaller gardens. The attractive Summer foliage is comprised of 5 perfectly formed leaflets each with intricate veins of pink and white that are almost like a work of art, standing out against the dark green foliage. In autumn the foliage lights up with brilliant fiery hues of orange and red contrasting with blue-back berries before the leaves eventually fall. A great plant for covering fences, walls and unsightly buildings.

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.
