Vitus - Wholesale Nurseries
Here we are looking at the Ornamental Grape varieties that wholesale growers offer on the UK. Grown for the foliage, and although the autumn colour can be outstanding, the attractive green through spring and summer add a lush green look to landscaping projects.
Used on trellises, fences and allowed to scramble through trees, ornamental grape vine have a lot to offer landscape designers. For sheer colour look for Vitus coignetiae, however for colour plus grapes look for 'Brant'.
