Parthenocissus henryana, the silvervein or Chinese Virginia creeper, is a relative of Virginia creeper and the most beautiful species of the genus. Its leaves emerge a beautiful burgundy red with silver white and pink veins with the leaves slowly changing to dark, velvety green. This colouration is more pronounced in shade. Then in the fall, the leave turn brilliant red, though fall colour is bolder when grown in sunnier positions. It is less vigorous than its popular relative and thus ideal for small gardens where it will quickly cover an awkward area, such as a north or east-facing wall, or use it as ground cover for larger applications. Small blue fruit appear in autumn.
