'Russian Vine' is a very hardy climbing plant that originates from South East Russia and belongs to the family Polygonaceae, and has picked up a few names along its journey. Russian Vine planted in the right position is a superb climber and it is no exaggeration, on a warm day in the main growing season you can watch it climbing. Russian Vine, with its very strong healthy looking foliage, which is very quick growing from spring to late autumn, is great for covering sheds, pergolas, walls, fences and screening from unsightly objects and neighbours! Russian Vine, can also be used for growing up trees for added enjoyment. In August and September Russian Vine is literally smothered with panicles of tiny, funnel-shaped, pink-tinged white flowers. The mid green leaves are also often tinged with crimson speckles too. You can plant Russian Vine in any position and it will tolerate any soil type.
