Vitis coignetiae, the crimson glory vine, bears large rounded, dimpled leaves, which turn fiery shades of red, gold and orange in autumn. It's perfect for covering a large structure such as a shed or garage, where it won't need cutting back. It's not suitable for growing on a small piece of trellis.

Grow Vitis coignetiae in fertile, well-drained, chalky soil and a sunny or semi-shaded site, with wire or netting to cling to. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
