Vitis vinifera 'Purpurea', known as the Teinturier or Claret grape, is a grapevine grown primarily for its ornamental qualities, with downy leaves greyish at first, becoming purple-tinted in summer, deep purple or bright crimson in autumn. The bunches of black grapes are not of good eating quality, but add to the picture. A lovely contrast to golden-leaved shrubs or climbers such as the Golden hop and with yellow-flowered Clematis 'Bill MacKenzie'.

Height and spread up to 6m by 3m (20ft x 10ft). Plant in well-drained, fertile soil, in a sunny sheltered site, ideally trained on wall or pergola. Can be pruned annually in November-December to restrict its size if necessary.
