Vitis coignetiae full sun  partial shade

Native to Japan and Korea—and absolutely extravagant! We love the grapes’ dramatic architecture and, in our garden, we’ve dedicated some substantial earthen columns to Crimson Gloryvine’s rampant blaze. Capable of filling an expanse, its very large (up to 10 to 12 in.) lobed and heart-shaped leaves are felted beneath in a rich rusty hue, providing a handsome palette for the display of diminutive greenish flowers that develop into clusters of beloved-by-birds purple-black fruit.

A satisfying gray-green through the summer, deciduous leaves spark to flaming shades of scarlet and amber as fall sets in. Easy-to-grow Gloryvine’s color intensifies in slightly dry soil where roots are somewhat restricted. Quart.

Blooms June.

Size: 30'–50' high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
