This ornamental vine is a magnificent climber for roomy situations where it will not need cutting back. It does not tame sufficiently to fit onto small pieces of trellis on a house wall. The large rounded leaves, which can be almost 30cm (1ft) across on a large specimen, are much less lobed than those of a common grape vine and have a dimpled texture, which looks attractive throughout the summer. In autumn when they turn fiery red, gold and orange, the effect is amazing. Plants need netting or something similar to cling to. Plants prefer fertile, well-drained, chalky soil and a sunny or semi-shaded site. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.

I've planted some of these to grow up a pergola to shelter our patio in France. I grew them from cuttings from a vine in Germany, which I just stuck in flower pots!! Is it all right to cut them back and if it is, when do I do it????
We have a crimson glory vine, it came with the house 10 years ago and is about 10 feet tall and spreads over 30 feet. Its been fantastic every year, but this year it appears to have died as there is not one single bud. I dont know if I am at fault as I do nothng with it, not even a small prune, or is it something to do with the cold winter we had?
Please help someone....
