Vitis coignetiae

One of the around 30 Asian species or Wild vines with full botanical name Vitis coignetiae Pulliat ex Planch. In the name, the two important French scientists Victor Pulliat (1827-1896) and Jules Émile Planchon (1823-1888) honored for their research. The second was the first to scientifically describe the species in 1883. It becomes scarlet to attractive due to the autumn carmine discoloring leaves also known as rust-red vine or scarlet wine (Crimson gloryvine) and therefore often on house walls as Zierrebe used.

Vitis coignetiae - red colored grapevine leaves

The hardy Vine comes mainly from the east Russia, as in Japan and Korea in front. It thrives in cool, humid forests on sandy, loamy soils and climbs up to 25 meters into the tree tops. The grapes with small, blue-black berries are rather inedible. In Asian countries, however, wine is also obtained from it, in Japan from the selected variety Yama Budou, During the phylloxera disaster in the 19th century, this wine was exported from Japan to Europe. Two other Asian species are Vitis amurensis and Vitis ficifolia, See further information at Asians Vines and Vines systematics,
