Vitis coignetiae has large almost leathery jungly leaves and as you might have guessed is a vigorous climber with fabulous long-lasting autumn colours. I'd suggest using it to cover unsightly shed or fences maybe if you have space grow it through an existing tree. Don't be put off by the size it can reach if left to it's own devices, like all vines Vitis coignetiae can easily be pruned hard once a year and kept to to size you want.

I first saw Vitis coignetiae sometimes known as the Crimson Glory Grape Vine growing through mature trees during the autumn at Westernbirt arboretum back in the early '80's. The effect it had on me has remained all these years, the leaves of the Vitis coignetiae were ablaze in fiery colours throughout the canopy's of several trees high above my head.
