Parthenocissus henryana is a Chinese relation of Virginia creeper and Boston ivy, with dark green or bronze leaves veined silvery grey, which are highly ornamental throughout the growing season, even before turning to gorgeous shades of red in autumn. A self-clinging climber, it can grow to 10m (33ft) up a wall or tree with no additional support, thriving in any well-drained, fertile soil, colouring best in light, dappled shade, sheltered from cold winds.
