Ampelopsis
« on: December 16, 2018, 01:39:43 PM »
Ampelopsis brevipedunculata is called "Porcelain Berry Vine" because it has startling blue fruit.  This is the variegated form 'Elegans' and it has taken a few years to get established - I hope it might fruit this year. I find the great variation in the patterns on the foliage quite intriguing,
cheers

Fascinating Fermi - not only intriguing colour variations but beautiful varied leaf shapes and sizes too. Very attractive.

The vine is now in flower, so fingers crossed that it will form berries!
