Vitis coignetiae is an ornamental vine, bearing 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 will not 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).

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....
