Parthenocissus Henryana, or simply call it the Silver Vein Creeper, is one of the vigorous Virginia Creepers native to China. It is self-clinging, can be attached to the garden walls or trees without harming them. This Virginia creeper is huge! It can grow up to a height of 10 metres (30 feet) at maturity (5-10 years).
What is noteworthy about Silver Vein Creeper is its spectacular multi-coloured foliage. It sports very distinctive leaves (3-5 leaflets) with beautiful silver-white veins illuminating them. This grand foliage obtains dark-green colour in spring, silver-white over green in summer and turns red in autumn.
The stunning red blush of its leaves is strongest in full sun. It prefers light to dappled shade, although it can also tolerate full sun but in this case the delicate silver veins tend to fade to green.
Silver Vein Creeper is hardy and spreads vigorously when nurtured in healthy, fertile and well-drained soil.
Prune it in winters or early summer, cut the over-reaching stems or see it cover your windows and entire roof! This Virginia creeper is best suitable along a dark background wall. Train it alongside walls and trellises.
It blooms green flowers in summer. The leaf edges of Silver Vein Creeper radiate such a purple glow that will fascinate all your guests to your garden.
