A showy and fast-growing climber with glossy green, heart-shaped leaves which can reach 15cm wide. Initially yellow-green they turn dark green as they age, and have superb, wine red stems. Growth can be damaged in hard winters but it'll re-shoot in spring. Either train up a trellis, over a fence, against a sunny, sheltered wall, or let it spread across the soil giving good ground cover. It's also known as H. algeriensis and there are several variegated forms including the white-edged 'Gloire de Marengo' and the tri-lobed 'Ravenholst', both of which have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, but note they're not as hardy.
