This climber has been a fixture in fine British gardens since the late nineteenth century. It is grown for its beautiful foliage, which turns orange, scarlet, and crimson-purple in autumn even in the unpropitious British climate.

Forms a dense covering on walls, trellis, and pergolas. May also be used to climb a large healthy deciduous tree to 75'. It is vigorous, and can outcompete smaller trees. It climbs by tendrils, and may initially need netting to help it begin to climb. To climb walls, it will need wires stretched in front.

Prefers neutral or alkaline soils.

Propagate by layering in autumn.
