We inherited this beautiful vine which grows over our flat-roofed extension (housing our lounge). Its such a lovely thing because it gives shade in the hot part of the year (we are south-facing) but dies back in the winter to let maximum light into the house. We had plumptious dark purple grapes this year, because or inspite of the vigorous haircut we gave it, we're not sure. It is so rampant that it is almost scary .. it has a certain triffid-like quality! But I like it best just about now when it is crimson and every leaf is completely different in pattern and colour.
