virginia creeper

Geoffrey Porter asked 11 years ago
I am looking for a virginia creeper. I have one but the leaves are very large. I am intersted in one with small leaves as it is for a small patio area – preferably a purple colour in summer. Do you have any suggestions as to where I could look on the internet?

There is a very pretty relative of the Virginia creeper called Henry’s vine,  Parthenocissus henryana.

This has red-purple colouring and silvery veining of the leaves. See it at:

Not as big is the purple grape vine, Vitis vinifera ‘Purpurea’. See:
