Vitis coignetiae (Crimson Glory Vine)

Crimson Glory Vine


Vigorous and strong-growing, award-winning Vitis coignetiae (Crimson Glory Wine) is a large deciduous climbing vine noted for its incredibly decorative foliage. Its slightly lobed, heart-shaped leaves can grow as big as 8-12 in. (20-30 cm) and make a dense cover in the growing season. Dark green through the summer, with their veins attractively impressed into the upper surface, they are covered with thick brown felt underneath. In the fall, the foliage warms up to vibrant, fiery shades of orange, scarlet and crimson-purple, and adds drama to the landscape. Tiny, insignificant greenish-white flowers appear in early summer, followed by small, black, inedible grapes in the fall. Native to Japan and Korea, Vitis coignetiae provides pleasure, year after year, if it is given ample room to mature.

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Easy to grow, this Grape vine can grow up to 50 ft. tall (15 m) and 15-20 ft. wide (5-6 m).
  • Thrives in full sun to partial shade in neutral to slightly alkaline, well-drained soils.
  • Ideal for covering an unsightly fence or wall or for scrambling through established trees. Crimson Glory Wine requires a sturdy support for their twining stems. Perfect in cottage gardens or Mediterranean gardens.
  • Propagate by layering or hardwood cuttings
  • If planted to grow along wires stretched in front of a wall or between free-standing posts, cut the young shoots back hard in late summer, and cut out some of the older stems in early winter as well.
  • May be affected by powdery mildew and botrytis
